NEWPORT County AFC left-back Calaum Jahraldo-Martin has been ruled out with a hamstring injury but fellow defender Ben White should be fit for Saturday’s League Two trip to Forest Green Rovers.

Jahraldo-Martin was forced off in the second half of Tuesday's Checkatrade Trophy defeat to Swansea City under-21s.

“It’s a hamstring injury and it didn’t look too good,” said County manager Michael Flynn.

“That’s why I had to shuffle the pack. We had a few tired bodies.

“David Pipe, Robbie Willmott, Mark O’Brien and Joss Labadie were all ruled out.

“I couldn’t put anybody else on the bench and I wasn’t on there either.

“I did think about putting myself on but I don’t think it was needed.

“I wanted to give the boys as many minutes as possible.”

White should be fit to play at The New Lawn but reserve goalkeeper and coach James Bittner will not be involved.

Bittner started a two-match suspension on Tuesday as a result of being sent off from the bench at Crawley Town last month.

“Ben went over on his ankle and was a little bit uncomfortable but he’s fine,” said Flynn as he looked ahead to Saturday’s match.

“I don’t think the players will need picking up because I’ve got six or seven of them to come back in.

“It’s just about taking on our momentum from last Saturday against a team who are going to be fighting because they’re down the bottom of the table.”
