Notts County boss Chris Kiwomya will have to shuffle his pack after Andre Boucaud received his marching orders in the 3-1 defeat at Bournemouth.

The midfielder misses the first of two matches following two bookable offences, and he joins Alan Judge on the suspended list.

Judge completes his own two-match ban on Saturday and will be available for County's final two matches of the campaign.

Kiwomya has no new injury worries but may be tempted to give a starting berth to striker Francois Zoko who was named on the bench for the defeat at Dean Court.

County are destined for a mid-table finish, sitting in 12th position 10 points adrift of the play-offs with three games to go.

Colchester's Freddie Sears will be pushing for involvement while George Porter also returns to contention.

Striker Sears, sidelined for six weeks with a knee injury, returned to full training last week but played no part in last Saturday's massive 2-1 win over Leyton Orient.

He did, however, make a goalscoring return for the club's reserve side in midweek and should he suffer no ill-effects then Sears will be firmly in the frame to feature at Meadow Lane.

Winger Porter is also back in the picture after playing for the U's second string having completed his three-match suspension.

However, Josh Thompson limped off with a hamstring injury after just 11 minutes of last weekend's win over Orient and will miss out.

Fellow centre-back Tom Eastman continues to struggle with the ankle problem which has kept him sidelined for five weeks.
