Swindon V Newport County at The County Ground : Match Preview

Swindon worrying over Luke Norris for Newport clash

Luke Norris may miss Swindon's clash with Newport this weekend.

The striker, who only returned from a shoulder complaint earlier this month, injured his ankle during the warm-up ahead of the midweek defeat to Grimsby and is doubtful to return against County.

On-loan Derby playmaker Timi Elsnik is once more likely to be sidelined as he continues his recovery from a muscle tweak while fellow midfielder Amine Linganzi (hamstring) and left-back Chris Hussey (groin) will probably not be involved.

Goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux is another whose participation is in doubt and midfielder Donal McDermott is a long-term absentee with an ankle problem.

Newport captain Joss Labadie is set to make his first start since October 17 after returning from a hamstring injury off the bench on Tuesday.

Robbie Willmott is ruled out with concussion after colliding with an advertising board in that 2-1 defeat to Barnet.

Sean Rigg, Tom Owen-Evans and Lamar Reynolds are all in contention to deputise.

David Pipe was also forced off against Barnet after a blow to the head but should be fit to play.
