Defender Stephen Hunt and striker Karl Hawley are doubts for Notts County ahead of the visit of promotion rivals Chesterfield.

Hunt missed the win at Accrington on Saturday with a knock, while Hawley was also absent due to a hamstring problem.

The pair remain the only concerns for Steve Cotterill, who maintained his perfect start as Magpies manager with a 3-0 victory at the Crown Ground.

That result followed home wins over Hereford and Macclesfield, and ahead of the game against the third-placed Spireites Cotterill said: "It`s a good start, but it`s only a start. There are plenty of games still left to play.

"We are very thankful for the three wins but the clean sheet are pleasing because it means we have been concentrating for the 90 minutes.

"Chesterfield is a massive game, but all the games since I have been here have been that way and that will remain the case until the end of the season."

Leading scorer Drew Talbot returns to the Chesterfield squad.

The 10-goal striker missed the victory at Cheltenham on Saturday due to a virus but could go straight back into the starting line-up.

Adam Rundle is nursing a minor knock from the weekend but the forward is expected to be fit.

Chesterfield assistant manager Tommy Wright said: "They`ve got quality players.

"They`ve got a goalkeeper in Kasper Schmeichel who can undoubtedly play at a higher level and a goalscorer in Lee Hughes who myself and (manager) John (Sheridan) know from working with at Oldham.

"But we know their weaknesses. We beat then at home earlier in the season and they were very complimentary about us. Hopefully we can get the ball down and play again and get our passing game going."
