Lee Hughes is set to return for Notts County as they celebrate 100 years at Meadow Lane against Yeovil.

Striker Hughes - who scored 33 goals last season - has missed the last four games with a groin injury but is expected to be on the bench as County wear an all-white centenary kit.

Midfielder Neal Bishop is also expected to recover from a foot problem that ruled him out of their midweek defeat at Sheffield Wednesday in the first round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Ben Burgess, who scored his first goal for the club in their 3-3 draw at Bournemouth last Saturday, will be fit despite trouble with his knees.

But striker Luke Rodgers is still sidelined after an operation on an ankle injury, and Stephen Hunt is ruled out with a hamstring injury he suffered in training on Monday.

Yeovil head into the clash in the midst of a striker crisis.

The Glovers will be without Sam Williams for their next three matches after he was sent off for clashing with Exeter's James Dunne in Tuesday's 3-1 Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat at Huish Park.

Williams' absence leaves Dean Bowditch and Luke Freeman as the only strikers at boss Terry Skiverton's disposal.

Swansea midfielder Shaun MacDonald has yet to feature after joining Yeovil for a third loan spell, and he could come into contention along with fellow loanee Rob Kiernan.

The midweek defeat to the Grecians left Town without a win in five matches in all competitions.

Their last victory came against Leyton Orient on the opening day of the League One season.
