Having been injured in the 3-2 road win over Telford at the start of the month, Lions’ Left Winger Chris Colegate will be now be out for a further six weeks.
The injury has already kept him out of Nottingham’s last two fixtures against Billingham and Whitley.
It will come as a blow for the Lions, who will now have to manage without their captain and leading points scorer for this season until the end of January.
Some small consolation can be taken from the fact that two of those six weeks will be during the festive break where the Lions have no fixtures scheduled.
Before the Lions boys can tuck into their turkeys, there is the small matter of a home game against the Solihull Barons this Sunday with both sides looking to pick up points to move away from the relegation spots. Face-Off is at 7.15pm at the National Ice Centre.
