With too many Millwall fans trying to get into the ground, some spilled onto the pitch which saw the intervention of the riot police.
After small skirmishes, the players were taken off the field and after Millwall manager Mark McGhee's (pictured) appeal for calm the game got under way.
The home side took the lead in the ninth minute against the run of play, a superb passing movement down the right between Carlos Edwards & Mark McGregor saw a cross come in that Craig Falconbridge did well to steal between the two central defenders to score from six yards.
That is how the sides went into half-time but midfielder Tim Cahill equalised six minutes into the second period.
Again Millwall fans spilled onto the pitch and were warned that if this happened again the game would be abandoned as the Wrexham players had to leave the pitch for a second time.
However, it was at Layer Road that the final promotion standings were decided, despite the visitors taking the lead through Jamie Cureton the home side hit back to relegate Reading to the play-offs.
Barry Conlon got the equaliser in the 34th minute and two minutes from the break, Aaron Skelton smashed in a penalty to give The U's all three points.
Rotherham secured First Division football, after spending just £200,000 in the summer, Alan Lee's injury time goal securing a 2-1 win over Brentford.
Lloyd Owusu gave the LDV Vans finalists a shock opener after just six minutes only for Stewart Talbot to equalise in the 34th minute.
Lee's goal sent The Millers merry and into the First Division.
At the bottom, Swindon seem to have secured their status with a last minute strike, which appears to leave Cambridge United and Bristol Rovers to fight it out to avoid the last relegation place.
Danny Invincible's goal gave The Robins a 2-1 win over Peterborough United, whilst Nathan Ellington's strike for Rovers, also in injury time, was not enough for them to avoid a similar scoreline defeat to Walsall.
Cambridge also lost 2-1 at home to Wigan and with Rovers having a game in hand on John Beck's side, the fact they are only a point behind United means both teams have a nervous run-in.
