Notts County manager Neal Ardley has given an update on defender Alex Lacey’s return to action.
The 27-year-old joined the club last November, having previously been with Gillingham.
On Lacey’s potential return to matchday contention, Ardley said:
“We’re managing Alex’s load in training at the minute. He’s still got pain, but it’s a case of getting that threshold to two or three out of ten, rather than nine out of ten as it was before, which would enable him to battle through.
“I need to see that he’s aggressive on the training ground and back to his best physically, or as close as he can get, before I can judge whether he’s ready to be back in the squad.”
