Now – almost ten months on – the defender is set to undergo yet more treatment on the injured area, with ‘Richo’ – who hopes to move into his tenth season here – hoping that proving his fitness will earn a new deal with the club.

The veteran is currently operating on a week-to-week contract at The ‘Lane after his current deal expired.

Richardson travels to the Lilleshall compound, Shropshire – the establishment responsible for such talents as Alan Smith, Michael Owen and even Kevin Nicholson – for his second stint of treatment since going under the knife in March time.

Richardson – who took control of the Magpies in late October – has made just one appearance for the side prior to the appointment of new boss Gudjon Thordarson.
