Newport County vs York City preview - Exiles short on midfield options



Posted Friday, October 10, 2014 by PA

Newport are short on midfield numbers for the visit of York to Rodney Parade.

Mark Byrne's fifth yellow card of the season in last weekend's 1-0 defeat to Oxford means he is suspended while Adam Chapman sustained an ankle injury in the same match.

Both Mike Flynn (hamstring) and Mark Porter (groin) are available again but are short of match fitness and unlikely to be thrown into the starting line-up while Lee Minshull should overcome his groin injury to feature.

Andy Sandell is also suspended having also been booked for the fifth time this season against the U's.

York's latest loan signing Diego De Girolamo is expected to go straight into the starting line-up at Newport.

The teenage Sheffield United striker arrived on Thursday and may partner Ryan Brunt, who made his debut last week after joining the Minstermen on loan from Bristol Rovers.

Forwards Wes Fletcher (hamstring) and Michael Coulson (groin) plus defender Dave Winfield (thigh) have joined long-term absentee Josh Carson (knee) on the sidelines.

Boss Nigel Worthington has hinted at including two other teenagers in his squad, with striker Ben Hirst and midfielder Ben Godfrey hoping to make the trip.
