Newport County defender Scot Bennett faces up to two months out with a hamstring injury.
Bennett was hurt in Tuesday’s 5-0 League two defeat at Mansfield.
“He will be out for between four and eight weeks,” boss Michael Flynn said.
For Notts a sickness bug in the camp has hampered preparations.
Shaun Brisley could miss out and Mason Bennett is absent after having a scan for his hamstring injury.
