Andy Sandell: Faces a late test

Andy Sandell: Faces a late test

Team news for Wednesday's League Two clash between Newport County and Dagenham & Redbridge at Rodney Parade.

Newport will be boosted by the return of Tom Naylor when they host Dagenham.

The Derby loanee has served his one-match ban for a red card against Morecambe and returns to contention and he could replace Ismail Yakubu who was forced off during Sunday's 1-1 draw with Exeter after a recurrence of his thigh injury.

The Exiles will assess Byron Anthony, who was struggling with a kidney infection last week, ahead of kick-off on Wednesday night along with Andy Sandell who has been suffering from a hamstring injury.

Star striker Aaron O'Connor, yet to kick a ball this season due to a groin injury, is edging closer to a return and has been joining in with Newport's pre-match warm-ups before games.

Luke Wilkinson will be assessed before Dagenham's clash with Newport in south Wales.

The defender missed Saturday's 1-1 draw with Morecambe due to a knock sustained in the previous fixture with Bristol Rovers, however the problem is not considered overly serious and he could return to the Daggers' ranks.

Boss Wayne Burnett is once again set to be without influential striker Rhys Murphy (groin) and fellow striker Zavon Hines (knee) with the duo not ready to return in the near future.

Winger Ashley Chambers, recently signed on loan from Cambridge, could continue after making his first start at the weekend.
