Bartosz Bialkowski can't wait to play in front of the Meadow Lane crowd for the first time since suffering a serious head injury.
The stopper missed out on the Magpies' 1-1 draw with Crewe Alexandra as a result of a late challenge in the meeting with Leyton Orient at the end of January.
Bialkowski's last appearance at Meadow Lane saw him keep a clean sheet in a 1-0 triumph over Oldham Athletic.
The Pole wants another shut-out against the Shakers in front of the Sky television cameras on Friday night (7.45pm kick-off at Meadow Lane).
He told Magpie Player: "I'm massively looking forward to this game and it's not very often that our game is on tele so it's a good one for us.
"We just need to start winning games and I believe we can do that on Friday, especially in front of the cameras."
He continued: "I've hated being injured, and I'm sure everyone has that feeling, but it was frustrating.
"Fab [Spiess] did well but I get back to the team and I'm sure I've done enough play again.
"I just need to keep working hard, keep playing well and I can stay there."
