Swindon worrying over Luke Norris for Newport clash

Posted Saturday, November 25, 2017 by PA

Luke Norris may miss Swindon's clash with Newport this weekend.

The striker, who only returned from a shoulder complaint earlier this month, injured his ankle during the warm-up ahead of the midweek defeat to Grimsby and is doubtful to return against County.

On-loan Derby playmaker Timi Elsnik is once more likely to be sidelined as he continues his recovery from a muscle tweak while fellow midfielder Amine Linganzi (hamstring) and left-back Chris Hussey (groin) will probably not be involved.

Goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux is another whose participation is in doubt and midfielder Donal McDermott is a long-term absentee with an ankle problem.

Newport captain Joss Labadie is set to make his first start since October 17 after returning from a hamstring injury off the bench on Tuesday.

Robbie Willmott is ruled out with concussion after colliding with an advertising board in that 2-1 defeat to Barnet.

Sean Rigg, Tom Owen-Evans and Lamar Reynolds are all in contention to deputise.

David Pipe was also forced off against Barnet after a blow to the head but should be fit to play.
