Leading scorer Lee Hughes remains the only doubt for League Two champions Notts County ahead of their final home game of the season against Cheltenham.

The 31-goal striker is still nursing the hamstring problem that ruled him out of the midweek trip to Darlington, where Notts clinched the title with an emphatic 5-0 victory.

The match will be Kasper Schmeichel`s last at Meadow Lane following the news this week that the club have agreed to release the highly-rated goalkeeper from his contract at the end of the season.

Notts will be presented with the League Two trophy at the end of the game and the club have urged supporters to refrain from coming on to the pitch.

A statement read: "The ceremony will take place on the pitch at the end of the match. Encroachments on to the field of play may result in the presentation being delayed or even cancelled.

"Therefore, supporters are requested to stay in the stands as this will allow them to celebrate fully with the players after the game."

Midfielder David Bird will again miss out as Cheltenham travel to the champions looking for the point they still need to be assured of their League Two status.

Bird has missed the last two games due to the calf injury he picked up against Rotherham and will again be missing at Meadow Lane when County will be presented with the League Two trophy.

Town`s position could not be much more different to that of their East Midlands opponents although with a six-point advantage and 13-goal swing in their favour over second-bottom Grimsby, it does appear to be a case of when and not if safety is secured.

Defender Michael Townsend (ankle) and winger Josh Low (leg) recovered to start last weekend`s last-gasp 2-1 defeat at home to Aldershot and will be involved once again.

Centre-back Shane Duff missed out due to sore calves and is again a doubt.
