Newport v Dag & Red preview

Date published: Friday 17th April 2015 1:57

Newport will assess defender Ismail Yakubu ahead of the visit of Dagenham.

The former Barnet centre-back limped out of their midweek defeat at Southend and the Exiles’ medical staff will monitor him in the build-up to kick-off as they look to revive their faltering season.

Kevin Feely could step into the side if Yakubu is not passed fit or Regan Poole could return to the starting line-up.

Boss Jimmy Dack dropped Lee Minshull, Yan Klukowski and Chris Zebroski and they will hope to regain their places should Dack shuffle his pack in a bid to end a run of three successive 2-0 defeats.

Dagenham’s Joss Labadie starts his six-month ban for a second biting offence.

The former West Brom trainee was charged with violent conduct by the FA last month after he was accused of sinking his teeth into the hand of Stevenage defender Ronnie Henry.

He was banned for 10 matches last season after biting Chesterfield’s Ollie Banks while playing for Torquay.

Ayo Obileye remains banned for the Daggers while Liam O’Brien (adductor) and Jon Nouble (knee) will be assessed.
