The midfielder had to substituted after just 21 minutes of Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Chesterfield, with both the player and the Magpies expecting the worst after he missed six weeks earlier in the season with a similar problem.

However, it is now expected he will only be sidelined for around two weeks.

Assistant manager Dave Kevan told the club's official website: "Luckily the injury isn't too serious and we hope to have Adam back very soon.

"It is a shame for him on a personal note because he has been playing well for us.

"Losing Adam was also a shame for the team because it disrupted that bit of continuity we had in the middle of the park."
