Gary Liddle: Returns from suspension

Gary Liddle: Returns from suspension

Magpies boss Chris Kiwomya has a big decision to make in central defence ahead of his side's home game this weekend.

Gary Liddle is available again after a three-match suspension, putting Manny Smith's place under threat. But Smith looked solid at the heart of the back four in last weekend's 1-1 draw against his former club Walsall, which leaves Kiwomya with a dilemma over who will partner captain Dean Leacock.

An injury forced Danny Haynes off during the first half at the Banks's Stadium but the summer signing should be fit.

Fellow forward Yoann Arquin is pushing hard for a starting role following goals from the bench in each of the last two matches.

The Boro will be without Lucas Akins when they head to Nottingham.

Highly-rated winger Akins is facing a spell on the sidelines after picking up an ankle injury.

Ben Chorley is still missing with a groin problem, although he is due to step up his training soon, while fellow defender Luke Jones could return to the squad after a calf injury,

Peter Hartley, Michael Doughty and Jimmy Smith will hope to keep their places after encouraging debuts in last weekend's narrow 1-0 defeat by Leyton Orient.
