Kevin Nolan: 'Notts County can cope without sidelined Shola Ameobi'

Joe Jones

Kevin Nolan is hoping that Shola Ameobi will not be out for too long but insists Notts County can continue to cope in case he remains absent beyond this weekend.

The veteran striker sat out the 1-1 draw at Stevenage last weekend, failing to make the squad with what is believed to be a groin injury.

Nolan suggested that the injury is minor as he was hoping to have Ameobi back for this Saturday's encounter with Cheltenham Town but will not rush him back to action.

“He’s done really well for us, but that’s why we have the squad we do in that if we do have these niggling injuries, we have people who can come in,” the manager told the Nottingham Post.

“I am hoping Shola isn’t going to be too long. We did the same with Dan Jones when he was injured that we have to make sure he is happy and we give him the genuine care that’s needed.

“He’s a top class pro and hopefully fit for this weekend, but, if not, then we have the squad to hopefully keep it going and working hard to get back to winning ways.”
