Wycombe V Newport County at Adams Park : Match Preview

Anthony Stewart looks set to miss Wycombe's clash with Newport

Wycombe look set to be without defender Anthony Stewart for the home game against Newport.

Stewart limped out of the 3-2 defeat at Coventry on Saturday after hurting himself attempting to make a headed clearance.

Will De Havilland came on in his place and should start, with fellow defender Adam El-Abd unlikely to return having missed that game through injury.

Ebere Eze dropped to the bench at the Ricoh Arena but impressed as a substitute and is pushing to start.

Newport look set to be without the suspended Mark O'Brien.

The defender was sent off for a poor tackle on Mansfield striker Matt Green in the 53rd minute of Saturday's goalless draw.

Newport manager Mike Flynn said in his post-match press conference that he would weigh up an appeal against referee Brett Huxtable's decision to send O'Brien off.

Striker Marlon Jackson and defender Calaum Jahraldo-Martin (both hamstring) remain sidelined.
