Wrexham manager Bryan Hughes says he is planning for the remainder of the season to be without the services of loan signing Brad Walker, but gave a positive update on the fitness of Luke Summerfield and Cole Stockton, North Wales Live report.

Wrexham have been missing holding midfielder Walker since the Shrewsbury Town loanee was forced off with a hamstring strain after just six minutes of their defeat at Leyton Orient on March 9 .

Walker returned to the New Meadow for treatment with Hughes insisting the initial diagnosis was between four and six weeks on the sidelines.

The maximum timescale takes Walker up to virtually the end of the regular National League season, with Hughes admitted it would be a bonus if the 22-year-old returned, but was not something he was counting on.

“We are speaking to Shrewsbury all the time to see where Brad is at,” said Hughes.

“He has stepped his rehab up a bit and is on the grass and doing a bit of light jogging.

“He is still getting a bit of soreness afterwards, the reports are saying, so it is just going to be a week to week thing with Brad to see where we are going to have him and to see how he goes.”
