WREXHAM were denied a well-earned victory because of the weather and Saturday's abandoned game could come at a cost with two players facing a spell on the sidelines.

Phil Parkinson's side carved out a deserved 2-0 half-time lead against strugglers Aldershot Town but the National League fixture was abandoned six minutes after the restart because of a waterlogged Recreation Ground pitch.

Although on top in the first period and ahead thanks to goals by strikers Jake Hyde and Paul Mullin, it came at a cost as first team skipper Luke Young hobbled off after just nine minutes before newly appointed club captain Ben Tozer was stretched off and taken to hospital.

Disappointed to be denied three points because of the wet conditions which saturated the playing surface, Parkinson is now resigned to being without two key players for a potentially lengthy period.

"Luke's is an ankle injury and Ben has got whacked on the shin," said Parkinson.

"He has gone to hospital for an x-ray so all we can do is keep our fingers crossed that they are not too serious.

"But obviously when you see two senior players like that stretchered off, it is a blow but I thought the lads who came on did really well.

"Devonte Redmond in particular came on and played the pass for the goal so I was pleased with his contribution."
