Striker Tyler Blackwood and defender Janoi Donacien have joined Newport County on emergency loans.

Blackwood, 24, has joined from Queens Park Rangers while Saint Lucia-born Donacien, 21, joins from Aston Villa.

Blackwood joined QPR on a one year-deal in July 2015 after impressing on trial and made his Hoops debut against Yeovil Town in the League Cup in August.

Donacien, who joined Aston Villa's academy in 2010, can play as both a central defender and as a wing- back.

He is yet to make a first-team appearance for Villa and spent loan spells with Tranmere Rovers and Wycombe Wanderers during the 2014-15 season.
