United lost 1-0 at Wrexham, the Robins goal coming from Ian Stephens after just four minutes. Mickey Lewis made his first league start for over three years and Neil McGowan started in place of Steve Davis, who suffered an injury in the morning and Pål Lundin was in goal as Andre Arendse was off with South Africa on international duty, meaning that the U's had no reserve 'keeper on the bench. During the game Jamie Cook came on for Rob Folland, Derek Lilley replaced Matt Murphy and Jamie Lambert replaced Joey Beauchamp, who was revealed to have a touch of sciatica. A match report fails to say much more. This result continues United's record of never having won at the Racecourse Ground. Ever.
Former United players who found the net included Dave Penney for Doncaster, Danny Cullip who scored on his debut for Brighton. Nigel Jemson scored a penalty for Ayr United and ex-Oxford City striker Guy Whittingham was on target for Portsmouth.
South Africa beat Saudi Arabia 1-0. Andre Arendse didn't play, instead John Tlale was in goal and he made an outstanding last minute save to ensure victory for SA.
