Hartlepool-born Hartley, 26, has been been impressive at the heart of the greens defence throughout this season but told to rest up for at least 10 days and could face a 2-3 weeks spell before returning to first team duty.

Along with fit-again skipper and central defensive partner Curtis Nelson, vice captain Hartley returned to the Pilgrims starting line-up for last week's disappointing goalless draw at York but was replaced by substitute Ollie Norburn at half time.

Argyle are seventh, two points behind sixth placed Southend.
