PHIL PARKINSON reflected on mixed news regarding his two captains with Luke Young facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines but Ben Tozer able to continue playing.

The duo both picked up injuries in Saturday's clash against Aldershot Town which was abandoned after 50 minutes because of a waterlogged pitch at The Recreation Ground.

Parkinson confirmed that skipper Young sustained ankle ligament damage and will be out for 6-10 weeks.

"Luke's a good player and he is going to be a miss," said Parkinson.

"We have just got to get him back as quickly as we can. Hopefully it is closer to six weeks than 10."

Newly appointed club captain Tozer was stretchered off at Aldershot and it was feared he had sustained a broken leg.

However, x-rays showed there was no issue and Tozer took his place in the starting XI as Wrexham came from behind to draw 1-1 with Chesterfield in front of 9,147 supporters at The Racecourse - the Reds' biggest crowd in the National League.

Parkinson praised Tozer, whose long throw-in led to top scorer Paul Mullin heading home a late equaliser, for declaring himself fit despite not feeling 100 per cent.

"It was a massive bonus with Ben because when he was stretchered off, I honestly feared the worst," said Parkinson.

"He had a bang on the nerve and his whole leg went numb; he lost all his feeling and was a bit concerned but that quickly settled down.

"He played in a lot of pain against Chesterfield with the soft tissue damage but give him credit, he put himself up there to play and that is great.

"You need that through a season, people have got to roll their sleeves up and get on with things when they have got knocks and Ben has certainly set a good example."

Wrexham don't have a game on Saturday and will return to action the following weekend when they visit Marine for an FA Cup fourth qualifying round tie.
