Notts County hope Bartosz Bialkowski will get all-clear to return from head injury
BARTOSZ Bialkowski will have a head examination today – and Notts County hope their No.1 goalkeeper will be given the all-clear to return to action next week.
The Pole suffered a bad injury at Leyton Orient seven days ago.
He needed seven stitches to a nasty cut and was also left with concussion, after being struck in the head in a 50-50 challenge with Orient striker Charlie MacDonald.
He will not play at Hartlepool United today either, but the Magpies hope he is not out for a long time even though teenage goalkeeper Fabian Spiess has stepped in and done well.

"He's going to have another assessment today and we're hoping he will then be in the frame to play as soon as possible," said boss Keith Curle.
Bialkowski has stayed in Nottingham rather than returning to Poland during his layoff.
