Morecambe are again without striker Vadaine Oliver for the Sky Bet League Two home game against Newport.
Oliver serves the final game of a three-match ban for his dismissal against Accrington at the start of the month.
But fellow forward Rhys Turner could be available after a month out with hamstring trouble.
Morecambe have no new injury concerns and have been bolstered by the return of midfielder Alex Kenyon after a knee injury.
Newport moved up to sixth with a midweek win against Cheltenham, but they are likely to be without captain Joss Labadie and defender Mark O'Brien.
Labadie suffered a groin strain during the 0-0 draw with Wycombe last weekend, while O'Brien has missed two matches due to a foot problem.
In better news for the Welsh club, though, strikers Lamar Reynolds and Shawn McCoulsky could be involved.
Reynolds is fit again following a thigh injury, while McCoulsky has not played since the Carabao Cup defeat against Leeds last month because of hip trouble.
