TEAM NEWS: Josh Sidelined For County Visit

26 September 2016

JOSH Gowling will be the only absentee from Paul Hurst's squad to face Newport County on Tuesday night. 

The central defender injured his back in training last week and was forced to miss Saturday's victory at Mansfield Town.

Sean McAllister and Rhys Browne are now both back in full training and are both set to make comebacks in Wednesday's reserves game at Mansfield Town.

Speaking on Mariners PlayerHD about the midfield duo, Town boss Paul Hurst said: "They are both available, just a little bit difficult for them to get back in the squad at the minute. They've been on the training ground, working to try to impress, but we've got a game on Wednesday at Mansfield for the reserves, where it is a better opportunity to stake a claim. The training ground is important, but in an ideal world you want to see players involved in games."

Asked if he would be contemplating changes for the visit of the Welsh side, Hurst added: "I'm not one hundred percent set in stone at this time to stick with the team from Saturday.  But certainly there won't be any wholesale changes, if I decide to make any at all."
