Notts County, who visit Sheffield United for a crucial League One encounter on Friday evening, face an anxious wait to discover if influential midfielder Gary Jones must serve a suspension.

Jones was dismissed following a challenge on Nathan Smith during their 2-1 defeat by Yeovil Town three days ago but Shaun Derry, the County manager, has confirmed officials at Meadow Lane will appeal against referee Stuart Attwell’s decision.

“I am not going to talk about the incident,” Derry said. “But I find it frustrating that I can’t talk about it when I have to stand here and be put on the spot, I just really feel for Gary.”

United are fifth in the table while County are sixth.
