Newport striker Padraig Amond could return to the starting line-up for the home game against Carlisle.

Defender Ryan Inniss will serve the final game of his five-match ban, while forward Corey Whitely is pushing for a recall after recovering from a recent knock.

Thomas has been struggling with illness this week and will be assessed by medics on Saturday morning.
