AKIL WRIGHT has already recovered from a frightening early-season experience and the midfielder will tomorrow aim to help Wrexham bounce back from their Bank Holiday horror show.

The Reds go into their clash against Stockport at The Racecourse on the back of Monday’s 4-2 defeat at Hartlepool.

Although it was disappointing performance and result, Wright is just glad to be back playing after missing the start of the campaign through vertigo.

“The day after the Stoke game I felt a bit lethargic but I thought nothing of it,” said Wright.

“Then I ended up missing the Curzon Ashton game and the Wednesday the following week, I woke up, the room was spinning and I couldn’t walk.

“I got back into bed and had to call the club doctor and physio to come and pick me up because I literally couldn’t do anything.

“I got carried down the stairs and sat in hospital for quite a long time with a bucket in my hand being sick.

“I was seen and told I had vertigo. It was horrible.

“I woke up the next day just thinking it was going to happen again, worrying about it, but as time went on I got better and was back in gym, but it was a horrible experience.”

Wright wasn’t named in the squad for the opening four games and made his first appearance as a substitute in the 1-1 draw at Notts County on August 18 after making a full recovery.

“It wasn’t the downside in terms of being quite late in the season,” said Wright.

“Thankfully it was early doors so there were still a lot of games to play.

“But at the same time, getting back into the starting line-up wasn’t going to be easy but it was a challenge I was looking forward to.”

Manager Bryan Hughes made six changes for the clash at Hartlepool and Wright, handed his first start of the campaign alongside Adam Barton with Luke Young and Luke Summerfield rested, opening the scoring before the home side turned things around.

Wright is looking for a positive response against Stockport.

“It was my first start and a bit of fortune about the goal but a goal is a goal,” said Wright.

“Obviously it was nice to get a goal but a disappointing performance from us all. It was a bad day but we can’t really dwell on it too much, we have just got to move onto the next game.”
