Notts are without inspirational skipper Ian Richardson, as he has a one match ban, after picking up five bookings.

Heff- Should be back tomorrow
Tony Barras, who was expected to return in place of Richo after he was suspended last week, is also a major doubt with an ankle injury, meaning Notts would have to draft either young Danny Bostock, or midfielder Ian Baraclough in at centre half.

However, the bad news ends there for Notts who have the widest pool of players to choose from in a long time tomorrow.

Paul Heffernan is fit again following nearly a month out with a groin strain, while Simon Baldry is also expected to return.

Notts also have new boys Frazer McHugh and Paul Boertien in the squad, plus fellow loan signings Andy Parkinson and David Pipe, who both had excellent debut's last week at Wrexham.

While, 16-year-old David McGoldrick is expected to make his first-team debut at some point in proceedings, he is likely to be named on the bench.

Elsewhere, with 20 players to choose from, there's certain to be some unhappy players tomorrow, with Paul Riley, Shaun Harrad, Ian Baraclough (if Barras' fit) the likely men to be left out.

Notts (probable): Mildenhall, Pipe, Fenton, Barras, Boertien, Baldry, Caskey, Bolland, Parkinson, Hackworth, Heffernan.

Subs (from): Deeney, Nicholson, Bostock, Baraclough, McHugh, Riley, McGoldrick, Jephcott, Harrad.
