Justin Edinburgh: Big selection poser

Justin Edinburgh: Big selection poser

Team news ahead of Saturday's League Two clash between Newport County and Accrington Stanley at Rodney Parade.

Exiles manager Justin Edinburgh has a selection dilemma ahead of the season opener against Stanley.

Midfielders Adam Chapman, Robbie Willmott, Max Porter, Mike Flynn and Lee Minshull are all vying for a place in the starting XI and Edinburgh must now decide on his best formula.

The League Two newcomers could hand debuts to defenders Harry Worley and Ryan Jackson. New striker Chris Zebroski is also in contention to play some part.

The visitors could hand as many as eight players their debuts for the trip to Wales.

Stanley boss James Beattie has enjoyed a productive first summer in charge as he prepares to unveil his new-look squad against County.

Defenders Nicky Hunt and Rob Atkinson are set to start at the back while midfielders Josh Windass, Piero Mingoia and Michael Richardson are all vying for places in the middle.

Former Leeds and Portsmouth striker Danny Webber could partner fellow new boy Shay McCartan in attack.
