Billy Clarke should return to the Red Devils squad after their 12-goal top scorer resumed training following a hamstring injury ahead of Tuesday night's clash with Carlisle, but was not risked for the 1-1 draw.

Boss Richie Barker is still without captain Josh Simpson due to an ankle injury, while defender Kyle McFadzean remains sidelined as he recovers from the virus which struck him down in November.

Mark Connolly may have to settle for a place on the bench again.

The defender returned from a one-game suspension against Carlisle but Barker kept faith with January signing Connor Essam, who impressed on his full debut in Saturday's 2-0 win at Bury in Connolly's absence.

The Magpies are without the suspended Dean Leacock, who received his 10th yellow card of the season during the 1-1 home draw with Leyton Orient on Wednesday night and will begin a two-match ban.

John Cofie suffered a facial injury against the O's and the striker is a doubt along with right-back Julian Kelly, who has missed the last two games with a calf problem.

Manny Smith could come in for Leacock while Yoann Arquin, Cofie's 42nd-minute replacement in midweek, is on standby should the on-loan Manchester United youngster miss out.

Midfielders Jeff Hughes, Hamza Bencherif and Greg Tempest are also options for manager Chris Kiwomya should he wish to make any further changes to his starting line-up.
