The game will likely come too soon for midfielder Alex MacDonald, who has a hamstring problem, while defender Kellan Gordon (back) will miss out.

After completing 45 minutes for Stags’ reserves on Tuesday, wing-back Hayden White will continue to be assessed ahead of Saturday’s fixture.

For the Exiles, Otis Khan is ineligible to feature on Saturday, as the midfielder is currently on loan from the Stags.

Last time out, the Stags were beaten 2-1 away at Leyton Orient. After Kelland Watts scored his first Mansfield goal to equalise in the second-half, an inadvertent Mal Benning own goal gave Orient the win.

Newport have won two of their last five matches, and drew 0-0 with Walsall at home last time out on Tuesday evening.

We last faced the Exiles on the opening day of the season, a frantic affair that ended 2-2. The hosts found themselves two goals up at the break, but found themselves level pegging with Mansfield at full-time after goals from Krystian Pearce and Danny Rose.

The Stags finished the game with ten men after a straight red card to midfielder Jacob Mellis.
