Stone Touch & Go For Saturday

Stone picked up a nasty knock on his groin in the first half at Ashton Gate, leaving Dearden with some serious thinking to do this week over his defence.

Notts will definitely be without Nick Fenton and Ian Richardson (Suspended), while Stone, Simon Ramsden (Thigh), Craig Ireland (Thigh) and Ian Baraclough (Ankle) are battling to be fit in time to face Mansfield.
Dearden expects at least one of those to be fit, with Stone and Ramsden the most likely to recover in time for the game.

Dearden told Radio Nottingham:
"Danny has got abit of swelling at the top of his groin. The way it looks at the moment, it'll be touch and go for the game at the weekend against Mansfield."
