Upcoming fixtures

Once again there are no midweek League Two fixtures this week.

Notts' next game is away at 7th placed Accrington on Saturday 9th January 2016 with a 3pm kick off and a curtailed league programme due to the FA cup.

Will a new manager be in place by next week? Will there be any movements in or out of Meadow Lane with the transfer window now open? Plenty to discuss - so come to our forum and join the conversation.
