Newport vs AFC Wimbledon preview - Newport hope for triple boost

Posted Thursday, September 25, 2014 by PA

Newport are hopeful three players will be available again when they welcome AFC Wimbledon.

Manager Justin Edinburgh has seen his squad stretched in recent weeks and he hopes that ill pair Mark Byrne and Darren Jones, along with the injured Ismail Yakubu will be able to be involved against the Dons.

Three players went off injured in Tuesday night's Johnstone's Paint Trophy loss to Swindon and the Newport medical staff will assess Mike Flynn and Ryan Jackson who suffered muscle problems along with the concussed Aaron Collins.

The Exiles still remain without Byron Anthony, Kevin Feely, Max Porter, Danny Crow and Rene Howe.

Matt Tubbs returns to the AFC Wimbledon squad after a one-match ban.

The Dons' eight-goal top scorer will resume his strike partnership with Adebayo Akinfenwa, who has scored three goals in his last two outings.

Defender Andy Frampton is a doubt having turned the ankle which he recently broke but midfielder Jake Nicholson is expected to shake off a knee knock.

Full-back Jack Smith is stilll recovering from the knee injury he sustained early on in the season.
