Newport and Newcastle meet at the Rodney Parade in Newport in a match for the round of 32 of the League Cup. There is no record of direct confrontations between these two teams.
Newport County :
Newport comes to this game motivated, after a 2-0 win against Bolton, in a match for the English fourth division: Abrahams scored both goals of the match. It should be noted that the home team, in the previous rounds, eliminated Swansea (2-0), Cambridge United (1-0) and Watford (3-1).
The home team generally acts in a traditional 3-5-2, favoring quick transitions and attacks through the flanks. In this tactical scheme, the two most advanced men will be Tristan Abrahams and Ryan Taylor. The first athlete mentioned is Newport’s top scorer, with five goals scored. Coach Michael Flynn can count on all of his players.
Newcastle United :
Newcastle come to this game motivated, after a tie to a ball in the visit to Tottenham, in a game for the English league: the only goal of the team was scored by Callum Wilson. In the previous League Cup playoffs, the visitors eliminated Blackburn Rovers, 1-0, and Morecambe, 0-7. We recall that Newcastle have won the Premier League four times, yet they have never won the League Cup.
The visiting club generally acts in a tactical system at 4-4-2, favoring a more offensive style of play, attacking through the flanks. On an individual level, we highlight the right winger Joelinton, a very fast player and very strong on the counterattack. Coach Steve Bruce won’t be able to count on Ritchie, Dubravka, Schar and Longstaff due to injury.
