Lenagh return?
Striker Steve Lenagh could feature in the New Years Day game at Ilkeston Town. Lenagh picked up a calf injury against Clevedon Town on 6th December and has not played since.
Manager Gary Norton said: "We were not expecting his return for Ilkeston or the Shepshed game on Saturday and to have him back would be a bonus. But, I will leave the decision to our physio. Steve's still feeling his calf a bit but has responded to treatment. We have one eye on the FA Trophy game a week on Saturday."

Defender Leigh Everitt who is suffering a thigh injury, is unlikely to play New Years Day or on Saturday as Norton want him 100 per cent fit for the Hednesford game because fellow defender Matt Smith will be suspended and recent signing Jamie Hood cup-tied.

Striker Shaun Harrad (broken finger) is still out but Norton is hoping Notts County will allow him to play at Shepshed.

Defender Danny Haynes has fully recovered from an ear infection that has kept him out of the last few games. However, he may have to be content with a place on the bench after Hood impressed in the 1-1 draw against Sutton Coldfield Town on Boxing Day.

Former Manchester City midfielder Steve McKenzie is named in the squad.

Norton said: "If we can get four points from the next two games it will be fantastic. It will give us a platform for us to push for a top six or seventh place."

Rovers from: Belford, Wardle, Haynes, Branch, Smith, Hood, Cheetham, White, Barrett, Slater, Holmes, Doughty, Francis, Alexander, Sylla, Liburd, McKenzie, Lenagh.
