Wrexham defender Daniel Alfei sidelined for a month

Wrexham defender Daniel Alfei will be out for up to four weeks after suffering a hamstring injury.

Alfei, on loan from Swansea, suffered the injury during Wrexham's 0-0 draw at Forest Green Rovers on 2 February.

The 20-year-old missed Wales Under-21s midweek friendly win over Iceland in Llanelli.

"It's a bit of bad news but it gives somebody else a chance to come in and stake a claim for a place," Wrexham player-boss Andy Morrell said.

Wrexham reached agreement with Swansea in January to extend Alfei's loan dealexternal-link until the end of the season.

Morrell said he is hopeful defender Mark Creighton will return to first-team action before the end of the season.

Creighton has been out since last August after suffering a serious knee injury in the draw at Ebbsfleet.

"Creights is coming along great," Morrell added.

"He's ahead of schedule and he may get a game or two at the end of the season depending on how his rehab goes.

"That's a massive bonus for us. He's been a big miss for us this year."
