On-loan Mitchell Lund happy to help out at Wrexham AFC

Mitchell Lund hopes to help Wrexham continue their resurgence before returning to play his part in Doncaster Rovers’ promotion push.

The defender has been brought in on loan for a month from League Two leaders Doncaster and made his debut against Guiseley.

Wrexham, unbeaten in five games, are up to 10th in the National League table going into tomorrow’s clash at Dover Athletic and the 20-year-old’s goals are simple.

“Do my part here, help the team as best as I can and hopefully go back to Doncaster and help them at the top,” said Lund.

“Doncaster are having a very good season so I will just keep working hard.”

By his own admission, Lund was at fault when Guiseley took an early lead but Ntumba Massanka equalised with a stunning bicycle kick and substitute John Rooney’s brace - the second goal a fantastic free-kick - sealed maximum points.

“It was a great win and great goals as well,” said Lund. “It is always nice to play your part in a win as a defender.

“The first goal was my fault and I put my hand up for that but we carried on, dug in and we got the win.”

On-loan striker Massanka’s goal came from Lund’s cross and the full-back, who came through the Doncaster youth system, marvelled at the finish.

“I try my hardest to have a part in goals, it was a good cross and a great finish by Ntumba,” said Lund.

“The cross was always going away from him so he did excellent and showed what a good player he is.”

Dover are having another excellent season but Lund is optimistic Wrexham can get a positive result.

“It will be a hard game and a very good test for us,” said Lund.

“It will be good to see what we do but we are going into it with a lot of confidence being five games unbeaten which is very good."

Lund has not featured for Doncaster, managed by former Wrexham skipper Darren Ferguson, since suffering kidney damage in the 4-1 victory against Yeovil Town on August 27 and he jumped at the chance to get some game-time at Wrexham.

“It’s been a very awkward season for me but I am glad I am back playing football,” he added.
