Football - Kiwomya keeping cards close

Notts County boss Chris Kiwomya is having to manage a handful of players with knocks ahead of the visit of Carlisle.

The fixture list - the Magpies played six matches during February - is beginning to take its toll on Kiwomya's squad but he did not reveal which players might be affected.

Dean Leacock went off injured five minutes from the end of the 4-1 home victory over Bury last Friday but the defender managed to play the full 90 minutes of the 1-1 draw with Tranmere on Tuesday night.

Francois Zoko returned to the starting line-up at Prenton Park and he will hope to keep his place in the team against his former club.

Carlisle's visit to Meadow Lane will be the first home match for Kiwomya since he was given the Magpies job on a permanent basis last weekend.
