Newport County Preview – Can the County cause a cup upset?

After reaching the League Two play-off final at the end of the 2018-19 season, Newport County failed to kick on last season. In the end, Mike Flynn’s troops finished in a lowly 14th place with just 46 points to their name. The Exiles won 12, lost 14 and drew ten of 36 matches in the fourth tier.

Newport ended last term with three defeats from their last four games. The season was cut short in England’s bottom two tiers, which could have done County a favour. Newport won a mere two league matches from January.

Our betting prediction:
Swansea to win -1

(odds taken 1220 GMT, Friday 4 September)

The Welsh side were knocked out by Premier League West Ham United in the second round of this competition last term. Can County cause an upset against fellow Welsh team Swansea City this weekend?

Swansea City Preview – Swans to fly into second round?

Swansea City shocked many by reaching the Championship play-offs last season. In a crazy final day, the Swans’ 4-1 win at Reading coupled with Nottingham Forest’s 4-1 home loss to Stoke City gave Steve Cooper’s men sixth place. Unfortunately for them, Brentford were too strong in the semi-final.

Cooper did an outstanding job at the Liberty Stadium last season. However, building on their sixth-place finish will take some doing. After making the short trip to Newport this Saturday, Swansea begin their Championship campaign with a trip to Preston North End next weekend.

This will be first meeting between Newport and Swansea’s senior sides since the Welsh rivals met in the FA Cup in 2006. The Exiles have not beaten the Swans since an old Division Four fixture way back in 1987.


Key Facts – Newport County vs Swansea City Betting Tip

  • Newport finished in 14th spot in League Two last term

  • These two Welsh teams last met in this competition in 1978, which Swansea won 5-0


Swansea made a stunning start to the 2019-20 season, eventually making the play-offs in the Championship. Cooper’s men will be looking for something similar this time around.

Swansea should be too strong for Newport at Rodney Parade this Saturday. You can get the tasty price of 4/1 for City to win both halves of this one. We also fancy the Swans to keep a clean sheet – back the visitors to win to nil at 11/5.
