Zoko (centre): Injury worry for hosts
Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Notts County and Walsall at Meadow Lane.
Francois Zoko is a doubt for Notts County ahead of this weekend's match.
Summer signing Zoko, who has scored in both League One fixtures this season following his arrival from Carlisle, went off injured on Tuesday night shortly after giving the Magpies the lead against Hartlepool.
Fellow forward Yoann Arquin missed the 2-0 win in midweek through suspension and the Frenchman will sit out the second game of his three-match ban for the red card he received during the opening-day victory at Crewe.
Teenager Tyrell Waite was involved as a late substitute against Hartlepool and the 18-year-old could be in the squad once more, particularly if Zoko misses out.
The likes of Gavin Mahon, Joss Labadie, Hamza Bencherif and Carl Regan are available should manager Keith Curle wish to make any changes.
Meanwhile, Walsall remain without Febian Brandy and Richard Taundry as they aim to end Notts County's 100 per cent start to the season.
Striker Brandy missed Tuesday's 1-1 draw at Oldham - a point which got the Saddlers off the mark - with a hamstring injured sustained in the club's 3-0 opening-day defeat at home to Doncaster.
Full-back Taundry has missed both league games with a hamstring strain of his own and although he is expected to return to training on Friday, the game comes too soon and he will not be risked.
Manager Dean Smith has no new injury problems and could well stick with the same XI from midweek as he aims to topple a Magpies side who have won both of their league fixtures to date.
