Newport boss Michael Flynn is hoping to have a couple of his injured players back for the visit of struggling Stevenage.
Mickey Demetriou, who has been sidelined since August with a broken leg, and Joss Labadie are back in training and could return to a side that have lost their last four League Two games.
Robbie Willmott suffered a recurrence of a calf injury during the warm-up ahead of last week’s defeat to Bradford and is a major doubt, as are Daniel Leadbitter, Scot Bennett, Ade Azeez and Keanu Marsh-Brown.
Kyle Howkins remains sidelined as he continues his recovery from the nasty clash of heads in the FA Cup tie at Maldon & Tiptree last month.
Stevenage boss Mark Sampson may shuffle his strikers again as he looks to end his side’s goal drought.
Boro remain in relegation danger after three successive 0-0 draws and they have managed just one goal in their last five league outings.
Five-goal forward Kurtis Guthrie may earn a recall after spending the last two games as a substitute.
Sampson will also check on defenders Ben Nugent and Luther James-Wildin, who have been sidelined through injury.
