Plymouth boss Peter Reid will welcome both Carl Fletcher and Jim Paterson back into the squad to face Notts County at Home Park.

The midfield duo, who have been struggling from thigh and hamstring injuries respectively, have made timely returns to fitness to give Reid a selection headache ahead of the fixture.

The Pilgrims boss must decide which of the pair will take the place of ex-loanee Connor Clifford in the starting line-up following the 19-year-old's return to parent-club Chelsea last week, but club captain Fletcher is likely to get the nod.

Fellow midfielder Craig Noone will be in contention after overcoming a groin problem he suffered last week.

Defender Onismor Bhasera is expected to shake off illness to make the starting line-up as the club look to extent a run of two consecutive home victories.

Notts County midfielder Ricky Ravenhill could come back into contention.

Ravenhill suffered whiplash and facial injuries that required stitches following a freak collision with team-mate Neal Bishop during the early stages of the FA Cup win against Bournemouth a fortnight ago.

He was a doubt to face Rochdale on Boxing Day but the postponement of that game has given him more time to recover and he may make the squad.

Liam Chilvers will definitely miss out after the defender suffered knee ligament damage prior to the visit of Bournemouth. Striker Luke Rodgers has had his contract terminated by mutual consent.

Before the bad weather had forced their last two fixtures to be postponed, County had won their last three games in all competitions.
