Newport County AFC manager Michael Flynn has told journalists he hopes to have a clean bill as his team plays Bury FC on Tuesday.

The coach said he hopes “two or three” players are back from injury for the trip to Greater Manchester following a 4-1 defeat to Crawley Town.

On Saturday, Michael Flynn had to lay without Tyler Forbes, Mark O’Brien, Matty Dolan, Andrew Crofts, TyreeqBakinson, Keanu Marsh-Brown, and Robbie Willmott as all players were out due to injury.

As a result of the huge list of absentees, the manager had to name himself on the bench together with teenagers Tom Hilman and Jay Foulston. Flynn watched his side suffer a heartbreaking defeat as they dropped to fourth on the log.

The League Two side later suffered a huge blow as Fraser Franks was red carded late into the game, meaning he won’t be available for selection against the Shakers.

After the defeat, Flynn admitted his team had been second best during the game. Newport County would count themselves as fortunate to be trailing Crawley Town by a single goal at the break.

Although they seemed they were capable of earning a point from the game after Jamille Matt drew them on level with his eighth goal of the season. Yet, a penalty conceded after just five minutes took the game another direction.

As Franks now faces a three match suspension, Flynn is hoping to hear good news from the medics at the club as his team faces Bury FC who have been on incredible form all season.

Jamille Matt who scored the club’s only goal on Saturday is also a doubt for the game against the Shakers. However, the manager still believes he should be available as the player was substituted during the game to avoid serious injuries.
