Newport could receive a double boost for their key Sky Bet League Two clash against Oldham.

Victory for the Exiles at Rodney Parade would lift them into the play-off places ahead of their final game at Morecambe next Saturday.

And manager Michael Flynn could have midfielder Joss Labadie and striker Jamille Matt back in the mix.

Labadie had 10 stitches in a gashed ankle suffered against Swindon on April 9, while Matt has been suffering from a dead leg.

Midfielder Andrew Crofts and reserve goalkeeper Nick Townsend are again expected to be missing due to injuries.

Oldham saw their outside chances of a play-off place disappear following a 1-0 defeat at Exeter on Saturday.

Latics head coach Pete Wild will assess his selection options ahead of the trip.

But he could again be without goalkeeper Daniel Iversen, who missed the Exeter game because of a back strain that has also affected his hamstring.

Zeus De La Paz deputised against the Grecians and made a number of outstanding saves.
