SHAUN PEARSON admits there were times he wondered if he would play again as his injury nightmare showed no sign of ending.

The Reds' skipper missed the start of the season after undergoing foot surgery but after playing the final three games of 2020, he suffered another set-back.

Three months later and Pearson made his latest comeback as Wrexham beat Bromley 3-0 on Saturday to maintain the promotion challenge, and the 31-year-old is just pleased to be available for the run-in.

"There have been times this season where you start questioning whether you are going to play again," said Pearson.

"I am just glad to get out the other side of it and glad to see light at the end of the tunnel.

"We have seen two specialists and we finally seem to have got to the bottom of it.

"We are still making sure it is okay but, touch wood, it seems much better and I feel miles better moving, kicking, everything, so hopefully I have no more issues with it.

"Whether I play every game from now on or whether I play two or three games, or whatever, I am just glad to be able to help the lads who have been superb."

With Wrexham making a poor start to the season, Pearson couldn't wait to return to action to help revive the Reds' fortunes but accepts he came back too soon in December.

"I came back a little bit too soon last time; I was probably a little bit rushed, we weren't in as good a moment and I was desperate to get back and help," added Pearson, who hopes to keep his place in today’s televised clash at Notts County.

"With hindsight, I should have taken a little bit more time.

"But this time I have been able to take my time and get a lot of training sessions in to build up and I felt good out there.

"Hopefully now I can help the team as much as possible in the final games."
