The Shakers winger was reintroduced to the starting line-up against Portsmouth a fortnight ago and looked to be recapturing some of his best form.

But a groin injury suffered in Saturday's 4-1 defeat to Bournemouth has brought a premature end to his campaign.

Blackwell's side are currently second bottom of League One, six points away from safety.
