A win for Palace at Wrexham by two goals would leave Palace ahead of Wrexham by one point AND with a superior goal difference, so Wrexham would have to win their last game.
i remember that Brighton team well

they were huge

The Mansfield draw was a defining moment when I was 15. It taught me that no matter how good it gets, it always ends in tears.

I lived in Llandudno at that time and the two journeys back were amongst the worst expereiences in my life along with the journey back home to Mold in May 2013. The hangover in 1977 dissappeared reasonable quickly but until the past week or so the pain of the hangover from Wembley has started to fade away and hopefully we can nail it in a couple or months or so time. By the way the return home from our last Wembley experience against Ferriby was ok, as no one I was with at the time was surprised. Up the town, lets nail it as Champions, the suspense of the playoffs would not be pleasant as I would not go to Wembley if we get to the playoff final.

My dad used to talk about this game all the time. He reckoned there were Crystal palace fans on the kop who didn't actually realise they'd been promoted. He also thought if we'd gone up that year the success would of lasted longer. Something to do with freedom of contract? That came in later

That Palace game was the worst I've felt leaving the Racecourse, ever, and I have left the ground on hundred of occasion saying never again, I can tell you. I was in the old paddock Mold Road. The Mansfield game I was afternoons and no one would swoop with me. I haven't long got married so couldn't pull a sicky coz I needed the money.
Even if it doesn't pan out this year like I'm hoping it will, I don't think I'll have that Palace feeling again.

Not sure about that, even though I cried on the way home after the Palace defeat, half expecting that we may have blown it despite only needing a point v Mansfield. We may have a slightly younger squad but we would have missed out on our most successful season, promoted as champions, FA & League Cup QF's, Welsh Cup, a host of great cup wins, fantastic goals and some of our largest crowds for the last 50 years. We were surely a better team/squad after the acquisition of Cartwright, Davies, & McNeil and the gate money over our last 2 seasons in Division 3. That was the most dissapointing few days of supporting Wxm, despite a cracking season, but the following season more than made up for it, our greatest hour and made Wxm really put themselves on the football map.

It was and if memory serves me right, Mansfield scored late on minutes after Graham Whittle rattled a post with a trade mark free kick. Fine lines but as I say the next season was our greatest.
