Notts County have Neal Bishop available after suspension ahead of the visit of Plymouth.

Bishop missed the defeat at Carlisle as he served a one-match ban for accumulating five yellow cards this season. However, fellow midfielder Alan Judge remains out as he serves the second game of a three-match suspension.

Defender John Thompson, forward Craig Westcarr and leading scorer Ben Davies have been playing with slight injuries and could continue to do so.

Davies, who has scored seven goals this season, was advised to have a painkilling injection in his back prior to the game at Carlisle while Thompson and Westcarr have hamstring niggles.

Striker Lee Hughes continues to struggle with a hip problem and remains a doubt.

Plymouth manager Peter Reid hopes to have Reda Johnson and Rory Fallon back in his ranks for the trip.

New Zealand international Fallon has played no part for the Pilgrims since August after undergoing a hernia operation but played for his country in midweek, while Johnson twisted his knee during last weekend's 2-2 draw with Charlton.

"Rory Fallon is due back," Reid told the club's official website. "We have been in contact with the medical people at New Zealand and he had 12 minutes against Paraguay, which is a bonus.

"I will have a chat with him and see how he feels after the journey and, provided everything is okay, he will be in the squad."

Defender Jim Paterson is still struggling with a hamstring injury, but Rory Patterson and Onismor Bhasera could play after returning from international duty.
