Newport midfielder Josh Sheehan is suspended for the Sky Bet League Two visit of Oldham.
The 24-year-old must serve a one-match ban after accumulating five yellow cards in the league this term.
Tom King, who rushed back from international duty with Wales to sit on the bench in the midweek FA Cup replay against Grimsby, could return in goal.
Defender Danny McNamara and midfielder Keanu Marsh-Brown are also available again after international duty for County’s first league match in three weeks.
Ade Azeez and Mickey Demetriou remain on the sidelines with long-term injuries.
Oldham boss Dino Maamria will check on the fitness of defenders Zak Mills and David Wheater.
Mills played 90 minutes against Fleetwood in the Leasing.com Trophy last week in only his second appearance since returning from injury and Maamria is wary of his workload.
Wheater is hoping to get back into action after a back problem.
Desire Azankpo, who scored against Fleetwood, could get more action as he comes back from a lay-off but fellow forward Johan Branger is still out.
