Football - Hughes missing for Magpies

Notts County are expected to be without striker Lee Hughes for the FA Cup second-round replay with Rotherham.


The veteran striker missed Saturday's defeat against Brentford through illness and is unlikely to face the Millers.

Fellow forward Yoann Arquin, who scored in the initial tie at the New York Stadium, is battling to be fit after missing the weekend's game through an unspecified injury.

Boss Keith Curle will welcome back Alan Judge to his midfield after the 24-year-old served a one-match ban for being booked five times this season, while defender Krystian Pearce is in contention after returning from his loan spell at Barnet.

Dean Leacock is a doubt after being forced off against the Bees after picking up a first-half knock and fellow defenders Jordan Stewart (hamstring) and Tom Williams (calf) remain sidelined.
