A niggling knee problem is causing problems for English striker, Ollie Palmer. Palmer was benched in Wrexham’s last game against Stockport County. Phil Parkinson didn’t want Palmer to exhaust himself to save him from a major injury. The gaffer’s recent comments shed light on the severity and complex nature of the injury.

In an interview with the Leader, the Wrexham boss gave an update on Palmer’s injury as he said, “Ollie did some running on Monday to keep him active and he has had an injection in his knee. He will rest up and we will look to get him back in training on Thursday.”

Parkinson then further explains the problem Palmer’s facing as he says, “Ollie twisted it awkwardly against Grimsby and he managed it a little bit during the week. We didn’t want to risk him too much against Stockport but had him on the bench if needed. Hopefully this injection will help him with the issue he has.”

The positive side to be noted is Palmer is not majorly injured and given proper rest, he will bounce back. The return of Paul Mullin has decreased the pressure on other players, but most importantly for Phil Parkinson. Steven Fletcher is another striker Wrexham can utilize with Mullin upfront.

The anticipation surrounding Mullin and Fletcher’s partnership is palpable among fans and pundits alike, as they bring a wealth of experience and goal-scoring prowess to boost Wrexham’s lineup.

Steven Fletcher’s arrival will inject fresh energy into the team, and his proven track record of finding the net is a significant asset. If he can gel effectively with Mullin, they could form a devastating partnership that opposition defenses will find hard to contain.
