PHIL PARKINSON praised "immaculate" goalkeeper Christian Dibble following his impressive performance against Marine.

Dibble was introduced as a 13th minute substitute in Saturday's FA Cup fourth qualifying round tie at Rossett Park with Rob Lainton forced off with a head injury.

Lainton was knocked unconscious and also suffered a broken nose after striker Niall Cummins went in late on the Reds' number one.

Dibble, making his first appearance since the opening day 2-2 draw at Solihull Moors, pulled off a number of saves to keep his side in the game and Wrexham equalised deep into stoppage time to set-up tonight's replay at Nantwich Town's The Optimum Pay Stadium.

Parkinson was full of praise for Dibble.

"Christian deserves a really big mention because it is so difficult coming off the bench as a goalkeeper," said Parkinson.

"I thought he was excellent when he came on.

"Everything he did was immaculate and I am pleased for him."

Dibble is set to keep his place for the second meeting with Marine - the replay is taking place at Nantwich because The Racecourse pitch has been relaid - as Lainton follows return to play protocols.

"Rob didn't go to hospital because we had our doctor with us," said Parkinson.

"There is a protocol we have now got to follow because he was knocked clean out.

"We will do that and assess him.

"It was a worrying moment but apart from a broken nose and being knocked out, he is in one piece."

Parkinson could also be without striker Jake Hyde who went off injured in the second half.
