Jordan Slew suspended for Plymouth

Plymouth will be without striker Jordan Slew for their FA Cup second-round clash against Newport at Home Park.

The former Blackburn forward serves a one-match ban after he was sent off for two bookings during their defeat Morecambe last weekend - the Pilgrims' third successive loss.

Oscar Threlkeld could start at full-back following his recent recovery from a knee problem and in the continued absence of Ben Purrington.

David Ijaha, Gary Sawyer and Ryan Brunt remained sidelined through injury.

Newport pair Darren Jones and Paul Bignot are suspended and fellow defenders Scot Bennett, Kyle Cameron and Jazzi Barnum-Bobb are doubtful through injury.

That means midfielder Ben Tozer could again be deployed as an emergency centre-half alongside Ivory Coast international Abdoulaye Meite.

The 36-year-old was a free agent before joining the Exiles on a short-term deal last week and made his debut off the bench in the 4-1 defeat at Blackpool.

Rhys Healey and Josh O'Hanlon are expected to continue their partnership up front following Jon Parkin's loan move to York.
