Vela in Magpies contention

Josh Vela is expected to return to the Notts County squad against Swindon.

Vela has been nursing a knock but the on-loan Bolton midfielder should be involved again on Saturday, giving Magpies manager Shaun Derry a full complement of players to select from.

Along with Vela, Derry has the likes of Mustapha Dumbuya, Tyrell Waite, Andre Boucaud, Gareth Roberts, Kyle Dixon and Nathan Tyson available should he wish to make any changes to his starting line-up following the crucial 1-0 home win over Crawley on Monday.

Notts go into the game in the final relegation spot but are just a single point behind Crewe, Tranmere and Colchester.

Alex Pritchard will play the final match of his loan stay with Swindon.

The midfielder, who has scored eight times during his memorable season-long loan, will be involved against the Magpies on Saturday but he turns 21 on May 3 - making him unavailable to feature against Rotherham on the final day under the terms of his youth loan.

Lee Cox will hope to keep his place having marked his recall to the side with his first Swindon goal to see off Bradford on Monday while Nathan Byrne will come back into contention having been ill.

But Yaser Kasim, Ryan Mason, Louis Thompson and Nile Ranger all look set to miss out again through injury.
