Hamstring injury set to rule out David Pipe

Newport skipper David Pipe is in danger of missing the home game with Forest Green.

Pipe suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury in Newport’s 2-0 FA Cup defeat to Tottenham on Wednesday night.

On-loan defender Tyler Reid could deputise for Pipe and County boss Michael Flynn could tweak his team following the demands of playing at Wembley.

Ben White (thigh) will be assessed with possible recalls for Michael O’Brien, Matty Dolan and Shawn McCoulsky.

Forest Green have no new injury problems and manager Mark Cooper says his team are in “good shape”.

Alex Bray should retain his place in his native Wales after scoring on debut in the home victory against Coventry.

Cooper is expected to name the same side which secured the double over Coventry, although a change of defensive system could hand an opportunity to Dan Wishart.

Loan signing Chris Clements, who made his debut last weekend, is expected to be on the bench again.
