Football - Nicky in Stanley Hunt

Accrington boss James Beattie expects Nicky Hunt to feature against Newport.

The ex-Bolton and Bristol City full-back came off in Stanley's last game against Fleetwood with an ankle injury on New Year's Day but, with their fixture against Portsmouth falling foul of the weather, Hunt has since returned to training and should be available.

Goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli is back at the club on loan from Fulham and will be expected to dislodge Andrew Dawber, who has a slight thigh strain anyway, between the sticks.

Defender Rob Atkinson played a behind-closed-doors friendly so is ready to feature following his hamstring problem while Liverpool loanee Craig Roddan could make his debut.
