Notts County top scorer Jon Stead set for first start since October

Leading scorer Jon Stead could return to the Notts County starting line-up when Wycombe visit Meadow Lane.

The nine-goal striker suffered an ankle injury in October but is ahead of schedule in his recovery and returned to action off the bench in the FA Cup draw with Peterborough last weekend. With another week of training under his belt, Stead is in contention to lead the line.

Curtis Thompson has also returned to training after a lengthy injury lay-off and, while Magpies boss John Sheridan was more cautious about his potential return coming this weekend, the midfielder continues to make good progress and may not be far from his manager's thoughts.

Midfielder Stanley Aborah and winger Alex Rodman (groin) remain doubts as Notts County look to arrest a four-match losing run in Sky Bet League Two and earn only a second win in 10 league games to resurrect their play-off challenge.

Wycombe made eight changes for their Checkatrade Trophy win at Millwall in midweek and should revert to the side which started last weekend's thumping FA Cup win at Chesterfield.

However, winger Garry Thompson scored twice in the 3-1 win against the Lions and will hope to have done enough to keep his starting spot.

Loanee Paris Cowan-Hall was ineligible for the game against his full-time employers at The Den and comes back into the squad.

Scott Kashket has five goals in his last two starts and will lead the line, while Max Muller (hamstring) and Danny Rowe (knee) will hope to be involved after building their match fitness following long-term injuries in midweek.
