Big game and a chance to put a dent in a promotion rival. This is the tightest L2 I've ever known in terms of the table. No runaway leaders and 2 wins on the bounce will see us soar into the autos whereas 2 losses will likely see us drop well out of the play offs. A crucial stage of the season and we need to hang in there. I'm still hopeful for the title. ;)

Newport not been on a great run since a load of their loan players left in January so I’m hoping we can get a win though it will probably be scrappy.
To be honest still not convinced this game will be on so I’ll be waiting until 18:59 to buy my iFollow pass!!

A lot of predictions on their forum saying this will be either a draw or a win for us. Can't see this game being in any doubt judging by the forecast tbh. Hopefully this will turn out to be the case. Can see a dull, unedifying spectacle as a football match tonight with getting the job done the primary task at hand above all else. I think it will be a 1-1 draw though and we'll need to defend a lot better than we did in the Bradford game.

If we can a win tonight then brilliant, but a draw and give hapless Grimsby a battering on Saturday and it will be a great week.

Rain looks to be easing off in South Wales from mid afternoon onwards so I think it will go ahead.

Every time we get close to the autos we slip back. However, Newport are no great shakes at the moment so I predict a 1-0 or 2-1 to the lads.

Presumably Robbie Willmott wont be able to play against his parent club? If yes this seriously weakens our options
