Sierra Leone international Mustapha Dumbuya in photo and his Magpies side are aiming for their third straight victory over Scunthorpe at the weekend.
The League One side is just one place above the League One relegation zone, above the bottom four on goal difference only.
With only one victory in their last eight, Notts home tie against Scunthorpe United is a massive game for both clubs at the wrong end of League One.
But the Magpies have already faced Scunthorpe United twice this season and twice they came out victorious at Glanford Park before Christmas.
Notts first travelled to north Lincolnshire in October in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and claimed a 2-1 win thanks to goals from Stephen McLaughlin and Ronan Murray.
Last week they lost to MK Dons, conceding four second-half goals and their Sierra Leone international right-back Mustapha Dumbuya has not been a regular in recent weeks.
Mustapha Dumbuya, 27, has been on the sidelines for a while now and was not able to help his side avoid their ongoing relegation fight.
However, is not yet clear whether Dumbuya could be in the Notts County’s squad for their home tie with Iron on Saturday.
Following their poor recent form the relegation-threatened Magpies have sacked manager Shaun Derry and caretaker boss Paul Hart is hoping to bring discipline and desire that will help Notts County to escape the drop.
