Adam Chapman: Suspended for the clash

Team news for Tuesday's League Two clash between Newport County and Plymouth Argyle at Rodney Parade.

Newport will be boosted by the return of Darcy Blake when they host Plymouth.

The Wales international was outstanding during his first two appearances having signed for the Exiles in March but the defender saw red in the 2-1 home defeat to Portsmouth and served a one-match ban on Saturday.

But midfielder Adam Chapman, who was also sent off against Pompey, serves the second of his three-game ban for a straight red and misses out.

The Exiles could include Ryan Burge in their line-up after the playmaker returned to the squad for the 1-1 at Chesterfield on Saturday after missing two games with a calf strain. Lenny Pidgeley and Aaron O'Connor are edging closer to returning to action but this game looks to have come too soon for the pair.

Plymouth are sweating over the fitness of winger Jason Banton ahead of their trip to Newport.

The former Crystal Palace man missed Saturday's 1-0 loss at Burton with an ankle injury he picked up in training last week and manager John Sheridan admitted he is unsure whether Banton will be available.

And Sheridan, furious by his side's display at the weekend, replaced under-performing defender Neal Trotman with the experienced Paul Wotton at half-time and it remains to be seen whether the 36-year-old gets the nod from the start against the Exiles.

Argyle's failure to win four out of their last five games has left them five points adrift of the League Two play-offs.
