Newport hope for boost at bottom club Crawley
Newport travel to bottom club Crawley with sporting director Darren Kelly in charge of the first team following the departure of manager James Rowberry.
Rowberry left the club following last Saturday’s home defeat against fellow strugglers Rochdale, which saw them slip to 18th in the table.
Thierry Nevers could start after making a difference as a substitute in last weekend’s defeat by Rochdale on his return from injury.
Goalkeeper Nick Townsend also sat out that match, with Joe Day deputising, while captain Matty Dolan is nearing a return from an ankle problem.
Offrande Zanzala and Priestley Farquharson (both hamstring) are set to remain sidelined.
Interim Crawley boss Lewis Young may opt to make changes for the Sky Bet League Two clash.
Young was placed in temporary charge of the Red Devils on Sunday after Kevin Betsy was sacked with the club bottom of the division following a fourth successive league defeat.
On-loan midfielder James Balagizi could be absent once again after temporarily returning to parent club Liverpool to undergo medical testing on an injury issue which has caused him to miss the last two games.
Defender Tobi Omole (knee) is sidelined for the foreseeable future.
