NEWPORT County will travel to York City having lost manager John Sheridan to Oldham this week.

Sheridan had only been at the Exiles' helm for three-and-a-half months, having replaced ex-England defender Terry Butcher at the start of October, but he has taken over from the sacked David Dunn at Boundary Park.

The Welsh club are now set to be under the guidance of Sheridan's assistant Warren Feeney and first-team coach Mike Flynn for the Bootham Crescent clash.

Two ex-Minstermen, meanwhile, look set to feature for tomorrow's visitors.

Loan signing Ben Davies, now 20, is set to be handed a debut at left back after being recruited by Sheridan from Preston.

Attacker Alex Rodman, meanwhile, is set to return following a hamstring problem that saw him miss the Welsh club's last match - a 2-1 home defeat to Plymouth on December 28.

Davies had been lined up to start against Championship club Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup on Saturday before County's Rodney Parade waterlogged pitch was deemed unplayable.

Newport are also likely to include midfielder Connor Dymond tomorrow with the Crystal Palace under-21s skipper having arrived in South Wales on a one-month loan deal.

Dymond was on the Eagles' first-team bench as recently as Boxing Day for their Premier League clash with Bournemouth.

Cardiff City pair Jazzi Barnum-Bobb and Tony O'Sullivan will play no part, however, having returned to their parent club and Notts County have also recalled defender Scott Bennett.

Ex-Grimsby striker Lenell John-Lewis, meanwhile, is ruled out with a hamstring injury having started Newport's last 24 matches, meaning there will be at least four changes to the last starting XI.

But defender Janoi Donacien is available after Aston Villa agreed to extend his loan stay and former Dagenham & Redbridge midfielder Medy Elito will return after serving a one-match suspension for his red card against Barnet on Boxing Day.

Yan Klukowski also has a chance of figuring following two months on the sidelines with hamstring trouble but Nathan Ralph will still be ruled out due to a fractured cheekbone.

With John-Lewis sidelined, 18-year-old Aaron Collins is set to partner eight-goal, top scorer Scott Boden in attack.

Boden, 26, has netted three times in his last five matches and will be making his 250th professional appearance at Bootham Crescent.

The game will be visitors' first following an 18-day break from action with their January 2 home clash against Hartlepool also falling foul of the weather and they have only taken one point from their last 12.

County also currently lie just four points and places above the bottom-placed Minstermen.

Newport (probable): Day, Partridge, Barrow, Donacien, Davies, Rodman, Dymond, Byrne, Elito, Boden, Collins.
