Goalkeeper Rob Burch could return to the Notts County squad when Carlisle visit Meadow Lane.

Burch was forced off injured against Hartlepool on January 3 and has missed the last two matches.

Stuart Nelson has been his replacement and boss Paul Ince will have to decide whether to recall Burch or stick with Nelson should the former Tottenham trainee be fit.

Ben Burgess came on as a substitute against Southampton last weekend but his hamstring remains a problem. Fellow forward Lee Hughes and defender Liam Chilvers also remain doubts with calf and knee injuries respectively.

Alan Gow made his full debut at St Mary`s and could be in line for his first home appearance along with Lewis Gobern, who was an unused sub against Saints.

Liverpool defender Stephen Darby could also feature after returning on loan.

Carlisle will hand late fitness tests to skipper Paul Thirlwell and striker Jason Price ahead of the clash.

Thirlwell is hoping to shake off a calf strain, while Price is struggling with an Achilles problem. Both players missed the 4-0 Johnstone's Paint Trophy win over Huddersfield in midweek.

Central defender Danny Livesey made only his second appearance of the season as a late substitute in Tuesday night's Northern Area final first leg following his recovery from a long-term groin injury and will be in contention again.

Another centre-half, Tony Kay, remains a long-term absentee due to a knee injury, while new midfield signing Marc-Antoine Gbarssin is hoping to make his first start for the Cumbrians, who secured their first league win in six matches against Bristol Rovers last Saturday.
