Kevin Nolan admits Shola Ameobi and Jon Stead face a race against time to be involved in the Emirates FA Cup second-round tie against Oxford City.
Stead limped out of the 1-1 draw at Yeovil Town earlier in the month with a leg injury, while Ameobi has only recently returned from a knock himself, but has played the full 90 minutes of Notts' past two home fixtures.
The pair are doubtful for Saturday's 12.30pm kick-off but, with an otherwise fully-fit squad to choose from, Nolan is happy with the options at his disposal.
"Steady is recovering slowly but surely," he said. "We'll see in the next 24-48 hours whether or not he'll have a chance to be available.
"Shola is the same, he's been carrying a groin injury, so both of them will be assessed late on, but it's very doubtful."
Michael O'Connor and Adam Collin remain Nolan's only long-term absentees, while Callum Saunders' preparations for the game have been disrupted by a bout of flu.
"Apart from that we have a clean bill of health, which I'm very pleased about going into this stage of the season," said the manager.
"To only have one player with a slight strain and another with a contact injury, which can't be helped, is an absolute testament to the work all the staff behind the scenes have been doing."
