Kevin Nolan has provided an update on Shola Ameobi, revealing that the Notts County striker is touch and go in terms of his availability ahead of Saturday's League Two meeting with Luton Town.
The veteran marksman sat out Saturday’s 3-2 win over Oxford City in the second round of the FA Cup with a suspected groin injury.
Nolan insists that Ameobi is doing well but, due to having potentially aggravated a previous injury, the club's medical team are being cautious with him as they don't want to lose him for a long time.
“Shola’s okay, but we have to wrap him up in cotton wool,” the County boss told the Nottingham post. “He tweaked a bit of a previous injury so we are just being careful and cautious.
“We don’t want to lose him for more than one game. If it’s one then we will have to deal with that, but we don’t want him missing four, five or six weeks.
“He is a massive part of what we are doing going forwards.”
