Laws feared the worst when Nolan was taken off in the 21st minute of the 2-2 draw at the Pirelli Stadium, but is now hoping to see the defender return to action within a fortnight.

Laws told the club's official website: "Eddie was getting scanned on Tuesday.

"His movement is excellent and since the weekend he is almost free of pain - which is a good sign.

"So I will keep my fingers crossed that we do not see anything too drastic.

"He could be out for a couple of weeks maximum and if that is the case then I would be more than happy with that."
