Andre Boucaud: Boost for Magpies

Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Notts County and Coventry at Meadow Lane.

Andre Boucaud returns from suspension for Notts County.

Boucaud has served a two-match ban for the red card he received during the defeat at Bournemouth on April 6.

Fellow midfielder and captain Neal Bishop could also come back into the reckoning after missing the victories over Colchester and Doncaster with a knock.

Magpies manager Chris Kiwomya is likely to continue to give the club's up and coming players a chance to impress.

Curtis Thompson, Tyrell Waite, Haydn Hollis, Greg Tempest and Romello Nangle were all involved at home to Colchester a fortnight ago and all apart from Tempest retained their places in the squad at the Keepmoat Stadium last weekend.

Victory for County would be a third on the spin, representing their best winning streak of the season in the league. Three points could also see the Magpies finish ninth in the table, should other results go their way.

Coventry boss Steven Pressley will be without first-choice goalkeeper Joe Murphy .

The Irishman, who has started every league game this campaign, suffered a groin strain in an accident at home and will miss his side's final match of the season.

Chris Dunn is expected to make his first league appearance of the season in Murphy's absence.

Defender Jordan Stewart picked up a groin injury in last Saturday's defeat to Leyton Orient and is expected to miss out, but Blair Adams could come back into the side to replace him.

Adams has been sidelined since early February with a knee injury but he is expected to return to full fitness in time to play some part against the Magpies.
