Matt back after ban but Newport still without suspended Inniss

Newport have forward Jamille Matt back available for Saturday’s home clash with Sky Bet League Two leaders Exeter.

Matt can be called upon again after serving a one-match ban following his sending off at Northampton. Defender Ryan Inniss remains out of the picture as he continues to serve his five-game suspension.

This will be Newport’s first home fixture since it emerged that they received an approach from Lincoln regarding boss Michael Flynn.

The Exiles announced ahead of Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Macclesfield that they gave Flynn permission to speak to an unnamed club, with the 38-year-old subsequently saying he remained committed to Newport.

Exeter have no fresh injury problems ahead of the contest at Rodney Parade.

Midfielder Nigel Atangana, who has been recovering from an Achilles injury, is set to travel with the Grecians but is unlikely to be in the matchday squad.

Nicky Ajose remains unavailable due to a knee injury. Although he does not require surgery, the forward has had an injection and faces a two to three-week training plan.

Lee Holmes and Gary Warren are also not yet ready to make their comebacks from injury.
