Paul Bolland, Stuart Garden, Tony Hackworth, Danny Stone, Marcel Cas and Michael Brough all missed out due to injury with Dearden's side stretched to the limit.
Since joining Notts from Mansfield over a year ago, Dearden has not made one single permanent signing since walking through the door at Meadow Lane.
"I'm very cheesed off that our financial situation shows no sign of getting any easier. I've been here for just over 12 months and I've yet to sign a player." Said Dearden following the defeat following David Norris' double for Argyle.
