Eddie Nolan: Facing a spell out

Nolan sustained a torn hamstring in last week's draw at Burton and although not first thought to be serious, scan results have confirmed a muscle tear.

He now joins fellow right-back Christian Ribeiro on the sidelines, leaving on-loan Cliff Byrne as the club's only other recognised right-back.

Laws told BBC Radio Humberside: "Eddie's results weren't what we expected.

"He had a scan on Tuesday and it has come back with a tear on his hamstring, which unfortunately for him, and for us, will put him out of action for around six weeks.

"It may mean that we have to look at adding one or two players on loan, but we have the two-week gap after Cheltenham, so we won't rush and we will make sure we get the right man."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
