PREVIEW – Notts County v City

City travel to Meadow Lane tonight missing several key performers for the second leg of the Worthless Cup clash with Notts County. Lee Philpott (bruised quadricep) and John Eyre (back) both came off injured during Saturday’s nightmare showing against Cheltenham and will be missing this evening. Jamaican’s Theo Whitmore and Ian Goodison are yet to return from international duty and will also miss out. New signing Clint Marcelle, who looked lively when he came on as sub against Cheltenham, could make his first Tigers start tonight though Little has expressed doubts about his match fitness. Two players are doubtful for County, keeper Darren Ward (shoulder) and midfielder Ian Richardson (calf) will both undergo late fitness checks. The Tiger’s hold a slender 1-0 lead going into the second leg of this first round game, thanks to a John Eyre strike in the first leg at the Ark.
