MARK King is set to return to Accrington Stanley's squad this weekend to help solve the club's defensive crisis.

With Aswad Thomas and Leam Richardson suspended, and with Darran Kempson's loan spell cut short by parent club Shrewsbury, former Blackburn Rovers Academy star King will come into the reckoning for the trip to Notts County after recovering from injury.

Sean Webb will also be involved and their could be a place for youngsters Jay Bell and Peter Murphy - who have been recalled from loan spells at Prescot Cables - as well as Andrew Smith and Chris Turner.
