Notts County will be without the suspended Jamal Campbell-Ryce when they host Swindon at Meadow Lane.
Campbell-Ryce was sent off in injury time at the end of the goalless draw at Preston on Tuesday night and the winger will begin a three-match ban.
Lee Hughes would also have been starting a three-match absence after he was retrospectively punished by the Football Association for elbowing Scunthorpe defender Tom Newey last weekend but the veteran striker is set to complete a loan move to Port Vale.
Manager Keith Curle will assess the fitness of Damion Stewart, who missed out against Preston with a knee injury.
However, fellow defender Manny Smith and Jordan Stewart remain sidelined with knee and hamstring injuries respectively.
Swindon will be boosted by the return of Aden Flint from suspension as they look to bounce back from Tuesday's home defeat to Brentford.
The 23-year-old centre-back has missed the last four games after picking up his second red card of the season in an FA Cup first-round loss to Macclesfield.
Striker Andy Williams will miss out again with his knee injury picked up against former club Yeovil last Saturday.
Midfielder Alan Navarro could be back in training next week having not featured since October 13 while Tommy Miller (leg), Fede Bessone (calf), Tommy Miller (leg) and Giles Coke (foot) all remain on the sidelines.
Swindon, who loaned defender Chris Smith to Northampton on Thursday, are sixth in npower League One but remain just six points behind leaders Tranmere.
