The Red Dragons are coming off an impressive victory, having thrashed Accrington Stanley 4-1 at the STōK Cae Ras last weekend. However, as Wrexham aim to maintain their momentum, the uncertainty surrounding Mullin’s availability is a concern for Phil Parkinson.

On a positive note, both Tom O’Connor and George Evans have rejoined team training and are available for selection, which will be a significant boost for the manager.

Speaking to reporters, Parkinson said: “There’s been the plus points of Tom O’Connor being back in training this week which is great for us. He gives us options in midfield and at the back because he’s a very versatile player.

George Evans was back on the grass yesterday and as I’m stood here watching, he’s out there now and that progress is really positive for us.

Nobody likes to see their fellow players injured and with Tom’s there was nothing we could really do because it was a broken foot. It’s great that we had the Alter-G treadmill to keep his fitness levels up.”

However, Parkinson revealed that Mullin’s fitness will be monitored, adding: “We’re monitoring Mulls because it’s something that needed to be done but with the sheer volume of games, we didn’t have a chance to do it. We’re just going to see how he is today and tomorrow.”

The recent break provided by a full week on the training ground comes as a timely respite for the squad, particularly after a gruelling schedule of seven games in 28 days. Parkinson used this time to fine-tune the team’s preparation for the crucial phase of the season.

“It’s been a good week and the lads that played the majority of those games in recent weeks have had a chance to recharge their batteries,” he said.

“We’ve had a chance to get some freshness back in us both physically and mentally and I’m pleased with the way the lads have looked.

We have been ready for that breather and of course the lads have been lifted by that victory at the weekend, and we’re ready to go again at Morecambe.”

Wrexham are three points adrift of league leaders Mansfield Town and can hardly afford to slip up if they want to remain in contention for an automatic qualification spot.

Therefore, Parkinson’s troops should be charged up to secure another crucial victory, this time away from home, after their dominant showing against Accrington Stanley.
