PHIL PARKINSON celebrated one his his best wins as Wrexham manager against arch-rivals Notts County but the list of players on the treatment table is growing.

Wing-back Ryan Barnett and centre-half Eoghan O'Connell missed the 2-0 victory at Meadow Lane, which extended the unbeaten run to eight games and keeps the Reds third in League Two, after picking up injuries in the 2-1 midweek success over Sutton and the duo are set to be out for eight weeks.

Aaron Hayden was also sidelined and Jordan Tunnicliffe - another defender - was injured in the warm-up and had to be replaced by Ben Tozer.

Star striker Paul Mullin and wing-back James McClean picked up their fifth yellow cards of the season and although the duo are available for Saturday's FA Cup first round tie at Mansfield Town, they will serve one-match bans when the Reds return to league action at home to Gillingham on Saturday November 11.

"We need to patch a few people up," said Parkinson.

"Eoghan looks like being out for eight weeks and Ryan is going to be out for eight weeks.

"We need to get a few players like Anthony Forde ready for what is going to be another exciting month ahead."

Club captain Tozer, who has been one of the first names on the team-sheet since joining Wrexham from Cheltenham in August 2021, recently opened up on the heartbreaking loss of his father Keith during the summer following a battle with leukemia, and has been given a breather in recent weeks.

Left out of the squad in Nottingham, Tozer was drafted into defence at the last minute after Tunnicliffe went down injured in the warm-up and Parkinson hailed his performance as he snuffed out the threat of prolific Magpies striker Macaulay Langstaff.

"Ben has got one or two problems with his knee and I decided to give him a break," said the Reds' boss.

"When Jordan got a nerve problem with his hamstring during the warm-up, I had to make a quick decision.

"We had options. Will Boyle can play central but we haven't seen him there loads, Max Cleworth could have come to the right and George Evans could have gone in the middle but I said to Ben: 'How do you feel?'

"He said: 'I feel great'. He has come in and that is not easy, he didn't even do all the warm-up, and what an accomplished performance from him.

"He controlled one of the best strikers in the league and we was very good, I am pleased for Ben."
