Joss Labadie suspended for Newport’s game against Forest Green Rovers

Forest Green Rovers

Newport have no fresh injury concerns for the League Two clash with Forest Green.

The postponement of Saturday’s match with Accrington means midfielder Joss Labadie remains suspended, the captain sitting out for the second game of his two-match ban.

Defender Scot Bennett (hamstring) is the only other definite absentee, with defender David Pipe expected to shrug off a knee knock.

Matt Dolan suffered a broken nose in training last week, but that should not prevent the midfielder from featuring.

Forest Green boss Mark Cooper has no new injury worries ahead of the trip.

The postponement of Saturday’s match at Crewe granted more recovery time.

Defender Lee Collins came off the bench in the victory over Crawley and could start if Cooper chooses to make changes.

Rovers were unbeaten in February, with wins over Coventry, Stevenage and Crawley, plus the draw at Morecambe, and are seeking to continue the run.
