Notts County will be unable to pick Elliott Hewitt for the game against Northampton as his season could be over.
Hewitt has not featured since the beginning of February with a knee injury and the Magpies will seek a second opinion this week.
Boss Neal Ardley has no other fresh concerns as his side fight for their Football League status.
“Elsewhere, touch wood,” Ardley said. “As it stands at the moment, we are all good. Long may that continue.”
Jordan Turnbull and Junior Morais could return to Northampton’s squad at Meadow Lane.
Defender Turnbull has missed the last two matches but has responded well to injections on an ankle problem, while forward Morais, who has been absent since February 16, is back in training following appendicitis.
On-loan Brighton defender George Cox (ankle) is set to return to the Cobblers after completing a period of rehabilitation with his parent club but is unlikely to feature on Saturday.
Midfielder Shaun McWilliams, who suffered a slight reaction on his return from a hamstring issue last weekend, should be fit to feature.
