Newport will have on-loan midfielder Charlie Cooper available again for the Sky Bet League Two match against Stevenage.

Cooper was not eligible to feature for Michael Flynn’s side in last weekend’s 1-1 draw against parent club Forest Green.

Midfielder Robbie Willmott made his first league start after returning from suspension, so will be hoping to retain his place, but forward Mark Harris is away on international duty with Wales Under-21s.

Matty Dolan had shaken off a knee problem, so should make the squad again. Defender Mark O’Brien (hamstring) and midfielder Andrew Crofts (Achilles) both continue their recovery.

Stevenage will have young defender Luther James-Wildin available after suspension ruled him out of last weekend’s win over Colchester.

Boro will check on Alex Revell and striker Kurtis Guthrie ahead of the trip to Wales.

Forward Revell picked up a suspected broken finger against the U’s, while Guthrie was forced off at the end of the match due to a dislocated shoulder.

Stevenage boss Dino Maamria made some nine changes for the 8-0 Checkatrade Trophy defeat at Charlton on Tuesday, but will recall his first-team regulars in the crucial league fixture against a top-six rival.
