Chris Kiwomya could have Bartosz Bialkowski available for his first home match in charge of the Magpies.

Teenager Fabian Spiess has deputised in goal for the last three games since Bialkowski suffered a head injury early on in the defeat at Leyton Orient on January 26.

Bialkowski could get the nod ahead of 18-year-old Spiess should he prove his fitness.

Kiwomya, appointed caretaker manager following Keith Curle's dismissal last weekend, will still be without captain Neal Bishop as the midfielder completes a three-match suspension.

Development squad members Tyrell Waite and Greg Tempest were both on the bench for the defeat at Stevenage on Tuesday night and could be pushing for a starting spot should Kiwomya opt to shuffle his pack.

Steve Davis hopes to have a fully-fit squad to chose from as Crewe return to league action against the Magpies.

Alex put one foot in a Wembley final on Tuesday night by beating Coventry 3-0 in the first leg of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy northern area final.

Defender Harry Davis was absent at the Ricoh Arena due to a toe injury, Mark Ellis taking his place in the starting line-up, but he is ready to give father Steve a selection headache at the back after subsequently coming through training.

Mathias Pogba returns to Davis senior's attacking options having made his international debut for Guinea in midweek.

Pogba came on to play the final half hour of Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Senegal in Paris, featuring alongside twin brother Florentin up-front.
