WREXHAM striker Eifion Williams is hoping to be back in action as soon as possible and help the Dragons continue their revival in League Two.
Rooted towards the bottom of the table since the opening of the season and picking up just 10 points under then manager Brian Carey, new boss Brian Little has turned around the fortunes of the luckless Dragons and secured a winning start to life at the Racecourse with two draws and a win in his three games in charge.
His first win came in Tuesday’s 1-0 victory at Gigg Lane against Bury thanks to Williams’ opportunist goal, in which he also pulled a muscle in his leg and now faces a stint on the sidelines.
“As a player you get set backs,” he said. “But while I will be out for a few weeks, it will give someone else a chance.
“I will be back though, although at this stage I’m not exactly sure when.”
Tuesday’s header, following a mistake by Bury keeper Jim Provett allowed Williams to race onto the ball and head into an empty net, and although in scoring he damaged him leg Williams admitted he was overjoyed at notching his first Dragons goal.
He said: “I was just delighted to grab my first league goal for the club, but the moment I felt the leg go, I knew I had pulled a muscle.
“As soon as I saw the keeper coming out I realised he had misjudged it, so I gambled, but as I stretched to head it in I could feel the pain in my leg and knew I had done it.
“But at least the goal was something we could hold onto and the lads did really well. We also kept another clean sheet.”
Meanwhile, the reserves pulled off a 3-2 win over Bury reserves at Buckley’s Globe Way last night with Michael Carvill stealing the show.
Carvill scored two of the young Dragons efforts, while Obi Anoruo added a third.
The only sour note of the night came as Silvio Spann was taken to hospital for stitches in a mouth wound.
Spann later said: “It was a very professional performance from the lads, but I am just really glad to be back playing.”
