PADRAIG Amond and Matty Dolan have both been passed fit play as Newport County AFC aim to complete a league double over Forest Green Rovers tonight.

Amond scored twice as County romped to a 4-0 win at the New Lawn in October and the striker has recovered from a dental abscess to stake his claim for a starting spot for the return fixture at Rodney Parade.

Midfielder Dolan has also been given the all-clear to play, despite breaking his nose in a training-ground collision with Dan Butler last week.

Captain Joss Labadie serves the second match of his two-game ban and Scot Bennett is still ruled out with a hamstring injury but otherwise manager Michael Flynn has a fully fit squad to pick from.

“Podge and Dolan are OK,” said the Exiles boss. “It’s only Scot and Joss missing.

“Everyone else is fit and available, which is great news at this stage of the season.”

County dropped to 14th in the League Two table after Saturday’s home clash with Accrington Stanley was postponed but they remain nine points off the top seven with a game in hand.

“We want to get out and play and get back to winning ways,” said Flynn.

“We want to win every game we play but we’ve got no divine right.

“We have to earn the points and this will be a tough game for us.

“Forest Green have changed their style a bit recently and they’re picking up results.

“But they still need wins to stay in the league so they will be tough opponents.”

Forest Green, who also saw their match at Crewe Alexandra postponed on Saturday, are 19th – just six points above the bottom two.

Looking ahead to the match, Rovers manager Mark Cooper said: “We’re in good spirits and in good form so I’m looking forward to it.

“We’ve worked on how to counter Newport’s strengths.

“You have to match Newport physically because they are a very powerful team.

“They’ve got quality in good areas and they put a lot of balls into the box so we have to stand up to that.

“We’ve got a bit of physicality about us as well now but that means nothing.

“You’ve got to do the basics right and that’s what we’re trying to do to get that consistency in our performances every week.

“I think everyone’s got a spring in their step at the moment but we’ve got to make sure we keep winning games and picking up points for that to continue.

“We need to keep the points tally ticking over because we’ve got to get a certain amount of points to make sure we’re in the Football League this time next year.”

Tonight’s match was originally scheduled to be played on February 10 but was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at Rodney Parade.

“We’ve spoken about having to adapt to the conditions,” added Cooper.

“We know it’s probably going to be very heavy and squidgy so we have to deal with that and make right decisions.”
