Harry Worley: Serving suspension
Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Newport County and Cheltenham Town at Rodney Parade.
Newport will be without the suspended Harry Worley as they welcome Cheltenham to Rodney Parade.
The 25-year-old defender picked up his 10th yellow card of the season in the 3-0 loss at Hartlepool and will now sit out the final game of his two-match ban when the Robins come to south Wales.
Byron Anthony looks set to keep his place having come through 90 minutes unscathed as his side won 3-2 against Oxford on Tuesday, his first start since breaking his leg back in August.
Despite having six games postponed since December 21, the Exiles are just six points behind seventh-placed Southend with three games in hand.
Cheltenham will be without Troy Brown when they make the short trip to Newport.
The centre-back tore ankle ligaments in their 1-0 defeat to Bristol Rovers last week and is now set to spend up to four weeks on the sidelines, meaning manager Mark Yates will be forced into a change against the Exiles.
Brown's withdrawal shortly after half-time against the Pirates saw right-back Sido Jombati sent on with Wolves loanee Michael Ihiekwe partnering Steve Elliott at the heart of the defence and Yates may stick with that set-up from the start.
He could also be boosted by the return of midfielder David Noble, yet to feature in 2014 due to a troublesome hamstring problem.
