Former Derby and Preston centre-back Mawene sustained the injury during last weekend's 1-0 defeat to Dagenham, but completed the 90 minutes.

Scans have confirmed the 33-year-old's absence for the immediate future and the news would appear to be a motivating factor in recalling fellow defender Rob Atkinson from his loan spell at Accrington.

Stanley boss Leam Richardson remains keen on bringing Atkinson back to the Crown Ground.

"We'll monitor the situation and see what comes of it," he told BBC Radio Lancashire. "He settled in really well and I think he's enjoyed it. If the same circumstances become evident again, I think he would like to return.

"Rob's done smashing, we thank him and we wish him well. We hope he has an impact on Fleetwood's season."

Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
