Magpies set for crunch clash
Notts County manager Keith Curle could hand late fitness tests to defenders Liam Chilvers and Julian Kelly for the home game with Colchester.
The Magpies boss has no new injury or suspension worries for a game that will decide whether his side secure a play-off place instead of Stevenage and Carlisle. Hayden Hollis is available following his return from his loan spell at Darlington, but Curle is still without striker Jonathan Forte (knee), goalkeeper Rob Burch (knee), plus defenders Jude Stirling and Sam Sodje (all knee) and Stephen Hunt (ankle). Midfielder Gavin Mahon and Ishmel Demontagnac and striker Lee Hughes are all pushing for recalls to the starting line-up. Seventh-placed Notts go into the game level on points with Stevenage, who currently occupy the final play-off spot, and one ahead of Carlisle.
