Notts County duo Matt Tootle and Ben Hall have been ruled out through injury, manager Neal Ardley has confirmed.
Neither defender took part in the Magpies' EFL Trophy game against Sunderland, which finished as a 2-0 win to the Black Cats.
Both players suffered their injuries last week, with Hall requiring a scan but Tootle being spared that, added Ardley.
"I think Matt is fine and it’s just a case of him not feeling the pain and doing the rehab to get back," the new Notts boss told the Nottingham Post.
“We had a little bit of an upset with Ben who rolled his ankle in a game last week on my first day.
“He is another one who is having a scan, so we are just going through one of those spells at the moment.”
