Notts take on Wigan reserves with Mark Stallard, Michael Brough, Liam Chilvers and Mark Warren all attempting to return to full fitness.

Stallard has been carrying an injury all season and has failed to regain the form that made him last season's top scorer.

Chilvers returned from Arsenal on Monday having received treatment for a hamstring injury. Brough and Warren have both been out with ankle injuries.

Notts desperately need to get players fit for Saturday following the return of James Quinn to West Brom and the upcoming suspension of Danny Allsopp, Stuart Garden and Ian Richardson.

Richard Liburd is currently with training with the youth team and is expected to resume first team duties next week.

And the prognosis for Liam Richardson is also good with the loan player from Bolton expected to recover soon.

Today's game kicks-off this afternoon is at 2 p.m.
