Jim O’Brien and Ryan Schofield have been added to the Notts County squad for their home game against Cambridge.

Midfielder O’Brien moved to Meadow Lane this week following his departure from Bradford, while goalkeeper Schofield has been brought in on loan from Huddersfield.

Christian Oxlade-Chamberlain is available again after serving a one-match ban but defender Matt Tootle will be out for a month with the thigh strain he suffered recently.

Dan Jones, Jamie Turley and Lewis Alessandra were back in the squad against Colchester but Kane Hemmings, Enzio Boldewijn (knee) and Elliott Hewitt are still nursing their injuries.

Liam O’Neil and Reggie Lambe are both doubts for Cambridge.

The duo missed out against Stevenage last weekend and are battling to be fit for the trip to Nottingham.

U’s boss Colin Calderwood could choose to name an unchanged team after the 2-0 victory over Boro.

Cambridge have won just two of their last 10 matches in League Two and are two places above the relegation places.
