GRAHAM Westley has reiterated that there is no way back into his plans for wantaway duo Mark Randall and Ben Tozer.

County are nine points from safety at the bottom of League Two but Westley will not consider recalling the midfield pair.

"Randall wants to leave the club – he doesn’t want to be part of the club," said the Exiles boss.

"That’s his choice, it’s not a selection issue.

"The fact that he isn’t in training with the squad [is because] I don’t want someone around who doesn’t want to be a part of it.

"And Tozer similarly, his fate has been sealed. We’ve had those conversations and he’s turned down the opportunity to play football elsewhere.

"I don’t understand why you’d sooner play no football than any football but that’s an individual choice.

"Neither of those two lads are going to play a part of the club going forward so it’s very much a question of them finding new homes."

A host of players could return to the squad as County host Leyton Orient at Rodney Parade tomorrow.

Westley is still without long-term absentees Lenell John-Lewis and Jamie Turley, while Michael Flynn and Mark O’Brien are likely to be sidelined and Jaanai Gordon is suspended.

But the Exiles boss expects Josh Sheehan and David Pipe to be fit to start after illness and he’s hopeful that Sid Nelson, Joss Labadie and Sean Rigg are all available again after injury.

Midfielder Mitch Rose is also in contention as the appeal process against his charge for knocking the red card from the referee’s hand at Cambridge United is still ongoing.

“We’ve lost key players in the past few weeks but we’re getting players back,” said Westley.

“We’ll get Rigg back, we’ll get Labadie back, we shouldn’t be long with O’Brien, we’re hoping to have Nelson back, Pipey should be back.

“So a lot of the lads who went out, who had been part of a very good upturn in form, they’re coming back.

“I doubt we’ll have everyone back but we’ve got players coming back into fitness as well as becoming available after short-term knocks.”

Westley believes that his strongest team will be able to get the wins needed to avoid relegation from League Two.

“We’re getting stronger and hopefully now over the last 13 games we can get that little bit of luck,” he added.

“Injuries are a matter of luck provided you’re doing all the right prehab, rehab and preparation.

“We need that little bit of luck to keep the team fit and keep selection consistent because obviously that’s going to help organisation.

“But I think if we get our best team on the pitch we’re more than a match for anyone in this league.

“We showed that against Doncaster the other week – we went toe to toe with the league leaders who are running away with it.

“We showed what we’re capable of when we’ve got our better players on the pitch and we’re confident that, getting the right players out there, we can beat the sides in front of us.”
