Worley back for Dons clash

Newport will welcome back Harry Worley for the trip to AFC Wimbledon.

The former Oxford defender missed Saturday's 1-0 loss to Cheltenham as he served the second of a two-match ban for accumulating 10 yellow cards and he comes into contention along with Christian Jolley, who has shaken off a bug.

Captain David Pipe was rested for the weekend's defeat after cramping up in training and he could return in place of Andrew Hughes, while Bristol City loanee Eliott Parish is likely to continue in goal.

Max Porter, who played for the final 30 minutes at Rodney Parade, will hope to start against his former employees as he continues his comeback from a long-term groin injury.

AFC Wimbledon will check on Jim Fenlon and Charlie Wyke before their clash with Newport.

Full-back Fenlon was feeling unwell when he was substituted during Saturday's 1-0 defeat by Bury and striker Wyke went off with a slight knock, although he should be fit.

Defender Will Antwi is a doubt with the hamstring problem which kept him out at the weekend and midfielder Peter Sweeney is unlikely to be risked yet following two months out with a fractured metatarsal.

Former Tottenham youngster Jake Nicholson could be added to the squad after signing for the Dons last week.
