Adkins to keep the faith
Reading manager Nigel Adkins is not expected to reshuffle his side too much against Reading in the Capital One Cup, as he continues to juggle a threadbare squad.
Hal Robson-Kanu (knee), Gareth McCleary (back), Danny Williams (knee) and Jem Karacan (cruciate) are all sidelined for the Royals, who drew their opening game of the season with Wigan on Saturday.
Danny Guthrie, who missed the season opener at the DW Stadium, could be involved after returning to training last week and Simon Cox could be in line for a first start for the club after coming off the bench on Saturday.
New signing Anton Ferdinand will not feature as he is not match fit and the club say he won't make his debut for another couple of weeks.
Newport have no fresh injury worries as they look to bounce back from an opening day to forget.
The Exiles were comfortably beaten on home soil by a Wycombe side that only stayed in League Two on the final day last season and boss Justin Edinburgh could well ring the changes.
Summer recruit Yan Klukowski will hope to make his first start for the club while Ismail Yakubu could come into the defence but Edinburgh remains without Max Porter, Danny Crow and goalkeeper Jamie Stephens.
The sides last met in this competition back in the 1970/71 campaign when the Exiles beat the Royals 2-1.
