Swindon manager Richie Wellens could welcome back striker Kaiyne Woolery, who has been sidelined by a knee problem since mid-October.
And loan signing Elijah Adebayo could start following a recent suspension, having been among the substitutes against Woking. Swindon will target a third successive League Two victory when they tackle Newport at the County Ground on Saturday.
An FA Cup defeat against non-league Woking last weekend dented Swindon’s progress, but their league form has been boosted by recent wins against Stevenage and Port Vale.
Newport boss Michael Flynn could have Joss Labadie available after he began his comeback from a serious knee injury as a substitute against Cheltenham in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday. Matty Dolan and Robbie Willmott are in contention following hamstring injuries, along with Keanu Marsh-Brown (thigh strain).
Newport will look to consolidate their place among the League Two pace-setters, and Flynn is set to welcome back a number of players. Joe Day, Mark O’Brien, Mickey Demetriou, David Pipe, Andrew Crofts, Tyreeq Bakinson and Jamille Matt are all likely to be recalled after not being involved against Cheltenham.
Swindon Town have only lost one of their last 14 home games against Newport County in all competitions (W9 D4), although that was this exact fixture last season, a 1-0 win for the Exiles.
Newport have already lost away at Swindon this term, going down 1-0 in the EFL Trophy in September after a Michael Doughty penalty.
Swindon ended a seven-game run without a home victory in League Two by beating Stevenage 3-2 in their last game at the County Ground.
Since a run of three consecutive away league victories in September, Newport have failed to win any of their last five such matches (D2 L3).
Swindon have won more points from losing positions than any other League Two side this season (12).
