Newport v Newcastle team news

Newport: The Welsh side have no fresh injury concerns and will be keen to field their strongest possible XI in a bid to upset the odds.

County are likely to deploy a three-man defence with wing-backs and two strikers including Tristan Abrahams who has scored three in his last two outings.

Newcastle: Steve Bruce will be keen to shuffle his squad to avoid early-season fatigue, but a seven-strong injury list is already providing headaches.

Matt Ritchie is set for a spell on the sidelines with a shoulder issue, while Ryan Fraser and Allan Saint-Maximin are both doubtful to return for this one.

Our prediction: Newport v Newcastle

Newport haven't conceded more than a single goal in any of their eight games this season across all competitions, and could prove stubborn for Newcastle to shift here.

They restricted Watford to just three shots – with only one on target – last week and will hope to suffocate Newcastle in a similar fashion.

Bruce is likely to give some of his fringe players a chance including Jacob Murphy, who starred against Morecambe, but will still expect a commanding win regardless of Newport's confidence going into this one.

Our prediction: Newport 0-2 Newcastle
