A look ahead to Saturday's game at Rodney Parade

Reds head to south Wales on Saturday to take on Newport County in Sky Bet EFL 2, kick off 3pm.

 

Crawley travel to Rodney Parade on the back of a good 3-0 win over Leyton Orient on Saturday. County lost 2-1 at Portsmouth in their last game and last time out at home they drew 1-1 with Luton Town.

The Opposition:

 

With seven games to go Newport are 23rd in the table, six points adrift of safety.

Back to back wins in March against Crewe and Morecambe gave them hope of climbing out of relegation trouble but they have lost two of their last three games.
Boss Mick Flynn admits Saturday's game is a must-win for his side and is hoping on good form at Rodney Parade them avoid the drop. Flynn took over a month ago after Graham Westley left the club and is County's third manager of the campaign.

 

The Previous Meetings:

 

Westley was in charge in December when Reds beat County 3-1 in a game which saw 13 players, including nine visitors, booked.

James Collins, josh Yorwerth and Jimmy Smith were on target for Crawley.

Our only previous League visit to Rodney Parade in September 2014 ended in a 3-0 win for Reds. Gwion Edwards (2) and Matt Harrold were on target. Crawley also won last season's reverse fixture at the Checkatrade Stadium 2-0 with Shamir Fenelon on target after a first-half own goal by Exiles keeper Scott Boden.
