As you were for County

Notts County expect to have an unchanged squad for the visit of Tranmere.

Despite losing 5-1 at Sky Bet League One leaders Leyton Orient on Tuesday night, Magpies manager Chris Kiwomya will probably stick with a 3-5-2 formation and on-loan duo Jack Grealish and Marcus Haber are likely to start again.

Kiwomya, who this week admitted he was unsure if his job was safe, could make changes to the team elsewhere, though, with Mustapha Dumbuya, Manny Smith, Danny Haynes, Yoann Arquin, Joss Labadie and Greg Tempest all available for recalls.

Defender Haydn Hollis (knee) remains on the sidelines for the Magpies, who are bottom of the table and still without a league win this season.

Former Wales international Jason Koumas could return to Tranmere's squad when they make the trip to Meadow Lane.

The central midfielder has been struggling with a groin injury but is expected to train on Thursday and Friday and could boost boss Ronnie Moore's options.

Moore had less good news elsewhere, though, with captain James Wallace - yet to feature this season - suffering another setback in his return from a knee injury.

Wallace has not featured since December and he will occupy the sidelines once again with fellow midfielders Andy Robinson (groin) and Jake Kirby (ankle).
