Ismail Yakubu: Could feature against the Gulls

Ismail Yakubu: Could feature against the Gulls

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Newport County and Torquay at Rodney Parade.

The Exiles have no fresh injury worries as they prepare to welcome the Gulls to south Wales.

Newport remain without strikers Aaron O'Connor and Christian Jolley, who scored 37 goals between them last season, but the pair are edging closer to a first-team return.

Lee Minshull misses out as he serves the final game of his three-match ban while Andy Sandell (foot) is ruled out until Christmas and Bryan Anthony will not return until 2014.

Ismail Yakubu and Tony James made substitute appearance against the Grecians having been missing through injury and are both set to be involved again while Billy Jones is likely to start after Edinburgh confirmed his substitution at half-time at the home of his former employees was a purely tactical one.

Torquay have no fresh injury worries as they look to build on last Saturday's emphatic 4-2 win over Cheltenham this weekend.

Charlton striker Adebayo Azeez could make his debut after joining on a one-month youth loan on Thursday. The England Under-19 international boost the Gulls' attacking options and looks likely to be involved.

Gulls boss Alan Knill is monitoring a number of his reserve squad who sustained knocks in the 7-1 midweek defeat to a strong Yeovil side but goalkeeper Michael Poke remains their only absentee, meaning Knill could name an unchanged XI.

Poke has been missing since the first week of pre-season and he continues to undergo shockwave treatment on his badly-torn thigh muscle.
