Accrington will have Billy Kee and Jonny Flynn available.

On-loan striker Kee and defender Flynn missed last weekend's 2-1 defeat at Torquay as they were away on international duty with Northern Ireland's Under-21s, but the duo are now back in contention for a place in the squad.

But Alan Burton and Leam Richardson are still a few weeks away from a return to action as they continue to battle against their respective ankle and groin injuries.

Manager John Coleman otherwise has no injury or suspension concerns to contend with as his side look to complete a league double over the Magpies.

When the two sides met back in December second-half strikes from Michael Symes and Jimmy Ryan were enough to give the Reds their first ever win over County at Meadow Lane.

Notts County boss Steve Cotterill is boosted by the return of striker Lee Hughes.

The free-scoring forward has missed the last three games due to suspension but looks set to return to the starting line-up.

Hughes is likely to partner Luke Rodgers in attack and Craig Westcarr could return to the midfield.

However, they again look set to be missing striker Karl Hawley, who sat out the midweek win over Macclesfield with a hamstring problem.

Cotterill has no other major concerns as his side bid to further enhance their League Two promotion credentials.

The Magpies ground out the points against Macclesfield on Tuesday and Cotterill said: "Sometimes it's more about winning games than wowing the crowd."
