Carlisle V Notts County at Brunton Park : Match Preview

06 April 2017 04:34

Jabo Ibehre and Jason Kennedy set to boost Carlisle

Jason Kennedy and Jabo Ibehre could be back to boost Carlisle's play-off push when they host Notts County in Sky Bet League Two.

The pair have returned to fitness after injuries and may play a part on Saturday after being unused substitutes last weekend.

Recent signing Ben Tomlinson is hoping for a first appearance for the Cumbrians but Nicky Adams is a doubt as he continues to struggle with a hamstring injury.

Shaun Miller serves the second game of a four-match suspension after receiving his second red card of the season in the defeat to Crewe a fortnight ago.

Notts County hope to have captain Michael O'Connor back in contention for the trip to Cumbria.

The midfielder missed last weekend's win over Colchester after bruising his foot in training but should be fit to play at Brunton Park.

Winger Mark Yeates will definitely be absent as he completes a three-game ban following his sending-off at home to Barnet last month.

Left-back Marc Bola has recovered from a hamstring problem and should be included in the Magpies' squad.
