Rooney is suspended for the Euro qualifier with Switzerland.
"Wazza is a great loss but we have got a lot of players who can come in and play in that position. I am sure the boys are raring to go to get an opportunity in the team," said Young.
"There are a lot of players fighting for positions and they are always good weeks when we prepare for games. I know everyone will prepare in the right way.
"I felt I did well in the last two games I started and we got positive results in both. Fingers crossed I will be able to continue to build on that this week and get my chance in the next game."
