The Cod Army are still likely to be without groin-injury victims Stephen Jordan and Alan Goodall when the Exiles visit in League Two.

Goodall, who recently returned from a loan spell with Grimsby, took part in a practice match in midweek yet is lacking match fitness so Leeds loanee Charlie Taylor will be expected to continue at left-back.

Jordan has a similar injury but is still considered a couple of weeks away from full fitness.

The Cod Army got back to winning ways against York last weekend after three games without a victory and boss Graham Alexander could stick with that XI which would mean striker Jamille Matt was rewarded for his goal without a second straight start.

Newport's new signing Adedeji Oshilaja will go straight into the matchday squad to face Fleetwood.

The Cardiff defender penned a one-month loan deal with the Exiles on Thursday and is going to be involved against the Cod Army.

Justin Edinburgh was searching for defensive reinforcements after Andrew Hughes suffered a hamstring injury in the win over Southend last Saturday which rules him out of the trip.

Fellow defender Tony James is also doubtful with a dead leg and County remain without a number of senior players including striker Aaron O'Connor, Max Porter, Byron Anthony and Andy Sandell.

Pulis To Liverpool Might Just Work

One Mailboxer believes that Tony Pulis managing Liverpool isn't as silly as you might think. Plus Bournemouth aren't that romantic and we're all guilty of ignoring Everton...
