Andy Frampton is suspended for Swindon`s crunch clash against fellow relegation contenders Notts County.

The centre-back was shown two yellow cards during last weekend`s 1-0 home defeat to MK Dons and now serves a one-match ban at the County Ground.

His absence means Scott Cuthbert is likely to come in to partner Lecsinel Jean-Francois at the heart of defence.

Goalkeeper David Lucas returned to the bench versus Dons having missed the previous two matches with a back injury and will once again challenge Phil Smith for the right to start between the sticks.

Long-term absentees Kevin Amankwaah, Vincent Pericard and Milan Misun (all knee) continue to watch from the stands as Town go in search of three points which will go a long way to deciding their fate.

Ricky Ravenhill will begin another suspension for Notts County.

The midfielder, who only recently returned from a two-match ban, was sent off again during the victory over Tranmere in midweek and has been hit with a four-game suspension which will rule him out for the remainder of this season.

Alan Judge could feature in Ravenhill`s absence. The former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international ended a three-month spell on the sidelines with a broken foot when he was named among the substitutes at Prenton Park on Tuesday night.

Defender Krystian Pearce is also expected to be included in the squad that travels to Wiltshire after recovering from the serious head injury he suffered at the start of last month.
