31/01/2014 - Newport County (H)
Edinburgh Returns

Friday night sees ex-Blues player Justin Edinburgh bring his Newport side to the seaside for their first visit to Roots Hall since 1985, when we lost 1-0 in the FA Cup 1st Round. We first played Newport on Christmas Day in 1920, when we drew 1-1 in Wales. Newport currently sit 8th in League 2, 11 points off top, 7 points behind us in 7th and 16 points off the bottom.

Earlier in the season we slumped to a disappointing 3-1 defeat in South Wales, with Ben Coker scoring arguably our goal of the season so far.

Newport's Last 5 Results:

Plymouth Argyle (H) - Being played tomorrow, score will be inserted here at Full Time.

Accrington Stanley (A) - D 3-3 - Wilmott, Burge, Minshull
