Ryan Jackson: Set to return

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

Newport should be boosted by the return of Ryan Jackson when they face Bury.

The former Macclesfield defender's dead leg meant he missed just Newport's second win in 15 matches on Saturday as they overcame Torquay 1-0 but he looks likely to return to the squad.

Darcy Blake and Kevin Feely, signed shortly before the trip to Plainmoor, both excelled and will hope to keep their places while striker Rene Howe, who missed their last two games for family reasons, could return to action.

Captain David Pipe serves the second of his two-match suspension for 10 yellow cards and sits this match out along with Ismail Yakubu, Byron Anthony, Jamie Stephens, Lenny Pidgeley and Andy Sandell.

Bury are likely to be without midfielder Tom Soares again when they visit Newport.

Soares came off against Torquay with a hamstring complaint and missed Saturday's home draw with Dagenham as a result.

Shakers boss David Flitcroft revealed the problem was only minor but was exercising caution for fears he could be out for longer. The ex-Barnsley manager added there is an outside chance that Soares could play in Wales, although a comeback against either Exeter or Scunthorpe looks more likely.

Brian Jensen will continue in goal after reprising his role between the sticks against Dagenham. The veteran had been dropped for teenager Reice Charles-Cook but Flitcroft does not think he is ready for Sky Bet League Two football just yet.
