Notts County manager Kevin Nolan is expected to make changes against Coventry as he attempts to get his side's promotion challenge back on track.
Nolan swapped seven players at Accrington on Monday, recalling Carl Dickinson, Matty Virtue, Liam Walker, Noor Husin, Rob Milsom, Ben Hall and Jonathan Forte, who started as a lone striker in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

The Magpies lost to the league leaders so the likes of Shaun Brisley, Dan Jones, Elliott Hewitt, Terry Hawkridge, Liam Noble, Shola Ameobi and Jon Stead will all be vying for recalls. Jorge Grant is also a fresh option after starting the last two matches on the substitute's bench.
Coventry have problems in goal as they prepare for the trip to Meadow Lane. Goalkeepers Lee Burge (knee) and Liam O'Brien, who each conceded three goals on Monday as the Sky Blues were beaten 6-2 at home by Yeovil, are both nursing injuries and will be assessed.
Corey Addai, 20, who has been on loan at non-league Dulwich Hamlet, is on stand-by to play. Midfielder Carl Baker (illness) is also being monitored while Maxime Biamou staked his claim for a starting place with both of Coventry's goals against Yeovil following his introduction from the bench.
The Magpies are unbeaten in their last seven home league matches against Coventry (W5 D2).
Coventry's last away league win at Meadow Lane was in August 1963, when they won 3-0.
Notts County are winless in their last four League Two matches (D2 L2), failing to score in each of their previous two games - they last went longer without a league goal back in November 2016 (a run of four).
Coventry lost 6-2 to Yeovil last time out; prior to this game the Sky Blues hadn't conceded more than two goals in a League Two game this season, whilst the six goals conceded were more than they had let in in their previous seven league matches (five).
Maxime Biamou has scored each of Coventry's last three League Two goals, including a brace last time out in their 2-6 defeat against Yeovil Town.
