Newport’s top scorer Dom Telford has tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss Tuesday’s League Two clash with Sutton at Rodney Parade.

Telford has scored 14 goals this season and 11 in his last seven league appearances.

Exiles boss James Rowberry says Telford has not been in contact with any other player given the club’s break from action due to their first-round FA Cup exit.

Club captain Matty Dolan has recovered from a head injury and is available to play.
