Wrexham manager Kevin Wilkin says he hopes to sign a replacement for injured goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann.

The Austrian, 20, on loan from Stoke City, is expected to be out for at least three months with a torn medial collateral ligament in his knee.

Wilkin wants "back up" for understudy Andy Coughlin, who played in Tuesday's 2-2 draw at Halifax.

"There are one or two goalkeepers we will look at and see where it goes," said Wilkin.

"Andy's a great lad and good goalkeeper as he proved last season so there's no panic.

"But I would like to bring in another goalkeeper here just to provide that bit of back up."

Wrexham dropped to eighth in the Conference and are six points behind leaders Barnet after the draw at third-placed Halifax.

The Welsh side twice came from behind to earn a point against the Shaymen who had defender Mark Roberts sent off.

Striker Louis Moult scored both goals for the Dragons, firing home the equaliser in the 84th minute.

Wilkin admitted he was left frustrated his side failed to win.

"I think we deserved no less than a point," said Wilkin, "and with the chances that have gone begging we are disappointed not to have taken the three points."

Wrexham's next match is at home to Grimsby on Saturday, 11 October.
