Steve Bruce talks ahead of tonight's clash

14:152 years ago

Newport boss Michael Flynn is hopeful of causing a 'big upset'

“We're going to enjoy it, hopefully, put on a good performance and cause a big upset.


“Let's not dress it up, going to be a very tough challenge. You've seen what they did to Morecambe last week who are in our league. 


“They are taking the competition seriously. I'm just glad it's at home because it gives us that little bit of advantage in terms of being used to our surroundings. 


“But they're Premier League and international players and they won't care about that. They'll be giving their all and I know Steve Bruce won't be taking it lightly.”

Magpies seeking quarter-final spot

Newcastle United head into this fixture in South Wales fresh from a controversial 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur, where VAR stole the headlines after The Magpies were awarded a last minute penalty which many feel should never have been given.


Steve Bruce's men know they must improve on Sunday's performance at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to avoid a tricky night against their League Two opposition.


In the previous round of this competition, Newcastle recorded their biggest ever away victory after dismantling Morecambe 7-0 at the Mazuma Stadium.

Newport looking to pull off another cup upset

Rodney Parade has been the home to a number of massive cup upsets in recent years, and The Exiles will be hoping that Newcastle are their next victims.


In the FA Cup in the last few years, Newport have taken Tottenham Hotspur to a replay and have took the scalps of Leeds United, Middlesbrough and Leicester City to progress further in the competition.


This is Newport’s furthest run in the League Cup, and have so far beaten Welsh rivals Swansea City, Cambridge United and most recently, Championship side Watford.


Newport’s pedigree in the cup’s will have Steve Bruce’s side worried, but do they have enough in the locker to potentially pull off their biggest cup upset of all by progressing to the last eight?
