Notts County have been rocked by the news that Ben Turner is not likely to be fit until April after suffering a fresh injury setback, say Nottinghamshire Live.
The centre-back had been hoping to return from a hamstring injury this month, but scans have now revealed a problem with his calf.
Boss Neal Ardley confirmed the former Cardiff defender, a key player for the Magpies earlier in the season, is now set for another extended layoff.
And he says Turner has been left hugely disappointed by the news.
“Ben has returned from his hamstring which hasn’t been going too well, but he has started to suffer a problem with his calf,” he said.
“We have had that scanned and that now looks like a six-week job.”
