It has been revealed today that Paul Heffernan's groin injury is not as bad as it was initially feared after a scan revealed he is not suffering from a hernia.

It was feared that Heffernan would be sidelined for some weeks after struggling to overcome his groin injury suffered in the 2-0 defeat at Luton, but the test results show a little tear rather than a hernia which is extremely good news for new manager Gary Mills.

“It’s positive news, fortunately it is only a slight tear and not a hernia,” Mills told the NEP.

There is now a chance Heffernan, Notts' top scorer this season, could feature in some part of Saturday’s game at Wrexham.

Mills still remains concerned that Notts could end up short of players again despite signing the Coventry duo, David Pipe and Avun Jephcott and Andy Parkinson on loan, with Simon Baldry and Ian Baraclough also carrying knocks.
