Notts County boss, Kevin Nolan, is confident striker Shola Ameobi “won’t be out for too long” with a hamstring injury.
The Magpies front man missed the midweek victory over Swindon Town after being forced off in the first half of Saturday’s 2-0 win over Morecambe.
Nolan says the problem is yet to be fully assessed, but Ameobi will be missing forSaturday’s trip to Crawley Town, when Notts will be aiming to make it eight games unbeaten in all competitions.
Nolan said: “We’re just taking it daily. It’s going to take a bit of time.
“It’s his hamstring. We thought it was maybe an overstretch, but when we looked at the video, and when the medical staff looked at the video, it seemed it was more what a sprinter would get in the way he hyper-extended his leg.
“They are really confident that he won’t be out for too long.”
