Swindon V Notts County at County Ground - Match Preview

Mason back in Robins frame

Swindon are boosted by the return of Ryan Mason as they host Notts County looking to build on last weekend's thumping victory.

The Robins ran out 4-0 winners at Rotherham and manager Mark Cooper now has a selection dilemma with Mason available again for the first time since September 14 after he recovered from a thigh strain.

While Mason looks set to be involved as Swindon look for their fourth win in a row, playmaker Ryan Harley is targeting a return next weekend as he steps up his recovery from a knee problem.

The Robins are hopeful defender Alex Smith could return to action in 2013 after a successful knee operation and he remains in the treatment room along with Tijane Reis, Mark Francis, Alex Ferguson and Aaron Oakley.

Alan Sheehan is an injury doubt for Notts County.

Sheehan will be assessed after he had to come off after only 12 minutes of the home league victory over Crewe on October 5 and missed the Johnstone's Paint Trophy win at Wolves three days later.

The Magpies were without a game last weekend due to international call-ups and manager Chris Kiwomya is hoping Callum McGregor (Scotland Under-21s), Greg Tempest (Northern Ireland Under-21s), Marcus Haber (Canada) and Andre Boucaud (Trinidad & Tobago) all return unscathed from duty.

Striker Enoch Showunmi (back) and defender Haydn Hollis (knee) remain absent.
