Wrexham hope to have defender Leon Clowes back for Cambridge

Wrexham

Leon Clowes could ease Wrexham's central defender crisis by returning for their Conference Premier clash with leaders Cambridge United at the Racecourse on Saturday.

Clowes has had a scan and his leg injury is not as serious as the club first feared.

The Dragons are already without fellow defenders Mark Creighton, Stephen Wright and Junior N'Tame.

Creighton is due to be out for another month with a hamstring injury.

Creighton suffered the injury during the Wrexham's 2-0 home defeat to Chester.

N'Tame was ruled out of Wrexham's 3-2 home defeat by Braintree in midweek after getting injured in the warm-up.

Wright has been out of action with a calf injury since the defeat to Luton on 13 September.

Wrexham, last season's play-off finalists, are currently 18th in the Conference Premier having only three wins from their 11 encounters.
