Wrexham v Newport (Sat)

Blue Square Bet Premier

Wrexham caretaker boss Andy Morrell is unlikely to make too many changes before the Blue Square Premier Bet Welsh derby against Newport.

The Dragons are four points clear at the top of the table and are on a five-match winning streak.

Any changes Morrell is likely to make will be up front, as he looks to keep his attacking options fresh.

Jake Speight and Mathias Pogba started in Tuesday's 1-0 win at Luton, with the latter scoring the only goal.

But Morrell may rest at least one of his strikers with Johnny Hunt, Joe Clarke and Danny Wright are all in contention for a start.

"I went to watch them play at Fleetwood and they were very good," said Morrell of Newport's recent 4-1 win.

"We know it's going to be a tough game but we have to concentrate on ourselves which is what we've been doing for the past month."

Newport manager Justin Edinburgh has no fresh injury concerns as he but will have to do without midfielder Ryan Gilligan.

Gilligan, on loan from League Two side Northampton, is still struggling with a dead leg which has seen him miss the last three matches.

"We'll certainly give Wrexham the respect they deserve, but we're not frightened in any way," said Edinburgh.

"No one will expect us to get anything [but] we went to Fleetwood last week and I don't think anybody expected us to get anything there."
