Notts County manager Kevin Nolan says he is happy that former Newcastle United star Shola Ameobi is back after after an injury-induced layoff for couple of weeks.
The former Super Eagles striker had not played for Notts County since injuring his hamstring in the win over Morecambe.
Nolan has also said he will not rush the Nigerian back into action.
“Shola’s return is great as it gives us more options,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.
“We are now at the point where, with the exception of Dan Jones, we are a fully-fit squad.
“He (Shola) has done a lot of work, but we are not going to rush him because we don’t want a recurrence of his injury.
“We are delighted how quick he has come back and it just shows that the work he did in pre-season enable him to be strong and ready to go against Mansfield.”
