WREXHAM goalkeeper Andy Dibble was back in action yesterday for the first time since picking up a thigh injury two months ago.
The former Wales international returned in a reserve-team match at Carlisle United, playing for an hour at Brunton Park before making way for Ryan Harrison in a 3-1 defeat for a young Dragons line-up.
Dibble said afterwards: "It was fine, I came through without any problems at all.
"It's not been the best of seasons for me so I'm just pleased to get out between the posts again and now I'll take things one game at a time and see how things go.
The 39-year-old keeper, who had earlier missed three months of the campaign after breaking a bone in his hand, added: "I'll probably have a few aches and pains in the morning, but that's to be expected at my age. But Ben Foster has done well for us since he came into the club so I don't expect an automatic return to first-team duty."
Striker Chris Llewellyn has undergone treatment for suspected knee ligament damage immediately after the final whistle but has not ruled himself out of contention for a League One return against the Latics on Saturday.
