Magpies worry over duo

Notts County will check on Mustapha Dumbuya and Zeli Ismail ahead of the visit of Fleetwood.

Dumbuya played last weekend as the Magpies got their League One campaign up and running with a draw at Preston but the defender missed the Capital One Cup defeat to Sheffield Wednesday and he is an injury concern ahead of Saturday.

Winger Ismail, on loan from Wolves, has yet to feature this season due to a hamstring problem and he is a doubt as Shaun Derry's men prepare for their first match of 2014/15 at Meadow Lane.

Experienced midfielder Garry Thompson remains out with the knee injury he suffered against Preston, while striker Danny Haynes (ankle) is also still unavailable.

Cod Army manager Graham Alexander is sweating on the fitness of loan man Stephen Dobbie.

Dobbie went off at half-time on his debut against Crewe on Saturday with an ankle injury and he was not involved in their Capital One Cup defeat at Rotherham.

Summer signing Jamie Proctor replaced Dobbie in the second half of the 2-1 win over Alex and impressed, earning a start against Sky Bet Championship side Rotherham and he may keep his place.

Jamille Matt is a certain absentee after a leg injury ruled him out of the whole of the campaign. The game may come too soon for Mark Roberts and Danny Andrew, who missed part of pre-season through injury.
