No new worries for Crawley boss Dermot Drummy

Crawley manager Dermot Drummy has no fresh injury concerns as they welcome Newport in Sky Bet League Two.

Joe McNerney played 75 minutes of Crawley's Sussex Senior Cup win over Horsham YMCA in midweek and Drummy is optimistic he could be on the bench this weekend.

The central defender has been out for seven weeks following knee surgery and is slowly rebuilding his fitness.

Matt Harrold (Achilles) remains a long-term absentee.

Newport boss Graham Westley looks likely to keep faith with Jennison Myrie-Williams after the winger was forced to drop into a full-back spot in the abandoned game against Morecambe.

The Exiles travel on the back of three successive league losses but were 1-0 up against the Shrimps last time out before the game was called off.

Westley was full of praise for Myrie-Williams' efforts in an unfamiliar position, while he also praised the returning Joss Labadie, who has been suffering with hamstring problems.

Jake Jebb is pushing for a recall to the side, having impressed for the reserves on Tuesday, with on-loan striker Jordan Green also in the mix.
