Sodje: Back in action

Sam Sodje will return to the reckoning for Notts County as the club's 150th-year celebrations kick off.

Sodje missed the defeat at Oldham through suspension after collecting his fifth yellow card of the season during the loss at Sheffield United on Tuesday.

Manager Martin Allen, who has hinted that he could give some of the club's younger players an outing, must decide whether to restore the big defender to his starting line up or stick with Mike Edwards, who came in for Sodje on New Year's Eve.

Alan Judge was carrying a knee injury against Oldham and was forced off early in the second half at Boundary Park but the midfielder could still feature.

Ishmel Demontagnac will serve the second game of a three-match suspension while fellow midfielder Gavin Mahon (hamstring), defenders Stephen Hunt (ankle) and Jude Stirling (knee) and goalkeeper Rob Burch (knee) remain unavailable.

Notts were formed in 1862 and are the world's oldest professional football club.

Meanwhile, Huddersfield striker Jordan Rhodes is expected to shake off a foot injury in time for the clash.

Rhodes, who has scored 21 goals in 22 appearances for Town this season, including six in his last three matches, received a kick on the foot during Friday night's 1-1 home draw with Carlisle, but should start.

Skipper Peter Clarke returned to central defence following suspension on Friday and will retain his place alongside Antony Kay.

Manager Lee Clark, who has no new injury or suspension problems, will have defender Liam Ridehalgh available following his return from a loan spell at Swindon, but goalkeeper Alex Smithies (knee), defender Calum Woods (ankle) and midfielder Damien Johnson (hamstring) remain sidelined.

Winger Danny Ward hopes to return to the squad, while midfielder Scott Arfield and striker Alan Lee are pushing for recalls to the starting line-up after stepping off the bench against Carlisle.
