Notts suffer Butcher blow
01 Dec 2008 - 11:18:47
Notts County midfielder Richard Butcher is unlikely to play again this year after suffering a suspected fracture to the fifth metatarsal in his left foot during the first half of Sunday's FA Cup second round clash with Kettering.
The 27-year-old former Lincoln City and Oldham Athletic star will have a scan later this week to determine the extent of the injury.
Butcher was forced to leave Meadow Lane on crutches wearing a protective cast on his left foot.
Meanwhile, Notts boss Ian McParland said after the 1-1 draw against the Poppies: "I'm a bit frustrated - it was a tough game and was always going to be that way.
"We battled back into the game after going behind to a lapse of concentration.
"We're still in the draw which is the main thing and it was just a shame we didn't take any of those chances we had in the second period."
