Newport County could have midfielder Robbie Willmott back from injury ahead of schedule.

The midfielder suffered a serious foot injury in October 2014 and it had been feared the 24-year-old would be out for up to five months.

But Willmott could now be back in action within six weeks, providing Newport boss Justin Edinburgh with a timely boost.

Newport are next in action at home to Plymouth Argyle on Boxing Day.
