Richard Duffy banned for Notts County

Notts County are preparing to host Yeovil without suspended defender Richard Duffy.

Duffy was booked for the 10th time this season during the win against Leyton Orient and he must serve a two-match ban. With Thierry Audel still struggling with a groin problem, it leaves Haydn Hollis and on-loan Josh Clackstone as the only recognised centre-backs available to Magpies manager Kevin Nolan.

Midfielder Michael O'Connor is just one yellow card away from a two-match ban after he was also booked at Brisbane Road.

The likes of Curtis Thompson, Alan Smith and Jonathan Forte will be hoping for recalls as Notts County aim to extend their unbeaten league run to a season-best four games without defeat.

Yeovil are expected to have a trio of defenders back for the trip to Meadow Lane as they look to end a torrid run of form.

Darren Way's side have won only one of their last 13 league matches but will welcome back Ryan Dickson, Bevis Mugabi and Nathan Smith on Saturday.

Dickson suffered a knock during the 2-0 defeat at Cheltenham last weekend but has recovered quicker than expected to keep his place in the side while full-back Smith (dead leg) returns after missing the last two matches.

Mugabi (knee) is also fit after being absent for the match at Whaddon Road but winger Otis Khan misses out with an ankle injury that has ruled him out for the last six weeks.
