As the transfer window edges towards its closure on Friday, Wrexham’s manager Phil Parkinson, is eager to secure at least one more signing for the team.
With a 1-1 draw against Barrow over the weekend placing Wrexham in the 16th spot on the League Two table, manager Phil Parkinson expresses his desire for at least one additional signing before the impending transfer window closure on Friday.
Despite this, Parkinson emphasizes that his primary focus is to unlock the potential of the existing group of players.
Parkinson admits Wrexham needs to improve
Speaking to reporters, Parkinson said: “Hopefully we will make progress. That will be a bonus if we do bring one in. But equally, it is about getting more out of the ones we have got. Look at Tom O’Connor at Barrow, he has had two really good weeks on the training ground, he has started a little bit slow but that was Tom how we know he can play controlling that midfield area for us.
“We have got to make sure that we keep focusing on the ones we have got and keep improving everybody. If someone comes in, that is a bonus; we are not hanging on that we are going to bring players in but it is a bonus if that happens and if we need to, we will act. We are looking at a couple of things but at this stage of the transfer window, you are very limited to options. We are in talks with players in different positions but for me, the most important thing is that some of our players are really starting to come into form.”
Wrexham is still facing the absence of their star striker Paul Mullin, who is in the process of recovery from a serious injury. He suffered four broken ribs and a punctured lung due to a collision during a pre-season friendly against Manchester United.
Although manager Parkinson has noted that Mullin’s recovery is progressing positively, it can be several weeks before he can resume training with the team.
