Notts have to contend for another game without winger Simon Baldry, who is struggling to get back to full fitness with a thigh injury. He is yet to play since signing a new contract a month ago.

Simon Baldry- Out of today's game
Tony Barras, who was only fit enough for the bench last Saturday, is again struggling, and it is doubtful he'll play a part.

The only other absentee for Notts is (holds back tears) Tony Hackworth, who was dumped on the transfer list by Gary Mills yesterday, and it seems his County career is over. His absence will mean a full debut for either on-loan striker Avun Jephcott or young Shaun Harrad, with 16-year-old David McGoldrick again in with a shout of making the 16.

Notts have captain Ian Richardson back from suspension, while the other big question mark is in-goal, where Stuart Garden may well step-in for the off-form Steven Mildenhall.

Barnsley have a new forward pairing in on-loan Man U star Daniel Nardiello and ofcourse, Notts legend Mark Stallard, that is easily one of the most dangerous in the Division.

Elsewhere, goalkeeper Marlon Beresford, who foiled Notts at Luton earlier in the season, is also expected to make debut for the Tykes.

Notts (Probable): Garden, Pipe, Fenton, Richardson, Boertien, Bolland, Caskey, McHugh, Parkinson, Heffernan, Jephcott.

Subs (From): Mildenhall, Nicholson, Baraclough, Bostock, Riley, McGoldrick, Harrad.
