Wrexham FC striker Ormerod out for 'a few weeks'

PLAYER-MANAGER Andy Morrell is resigned to being without striker Brett Ormerod for “a few weeks”.

Ormerod, who scored his first Wrexham goal in the FA Cup fourth qualifying round victory over Southport nine days ago, suffered a hamstring injury in training and would have missed Saturday’s clash at Braintree Town on Saturday.

“Brett did his hamstring in training and it looks like it is not particularly good news,” said Morrell. “We have to see how he is after it has settled down a little bit but he could be out for a few weeks as well.

“It is a massive blow because he was on top of the world last week, he came to us and said he just felt like crying.

“He is big enough to take it on the chin, he will get fit, work hard and get back in the team.”

Although he has not ruled out adding to his squad, Morrell is hoping centre-back Martin Riley and striker Rob Ogleby will recover from injury ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup first round tie against Alfreton Town at The Racecourse.

“We are always on the lookout but Martin is possibly coming back,” said Morrell. “We have got a reserve game tomorrow where I am hoping Rob might be fit and get some minutes.”

Right-back Danny Alfei, who has joined Wrexham from Swansea City for a second loan spell, is not elligible to play in the FA Cup but the 20-year-old was named in the side at Braintree.

It meant Stephen Wright or Danny Devine would have lined up in the centre of defence alongside Chris Westwood and Morrell admitted the competition for places meant he had a selection dilema.
