Is Newport v Newcastle on TV?
The game is being shown live on Sky Sports at 17:30PM
League Two side Newport will be licking their lips at the prospect as Premier League side Newcastle Utd make the trip to South Wales in the EFL Cup tie early this evening.
The match, which is rumoured to be worth £125,000 to the home side with the arrival of the Sky cameras comes as a reward to Michael Flynn’s side after disposing of Championship sides Swansea City and Watford in the previous rounds.
The arrival of Steve Bruce’s Newcastle to Rodney parade looks to be a completely different step up, with the Toon coming off the back of a fortunate 1-1 draw with Tottenham on the weekend, Callum Wilson converting a 90th minute penalty to earn the draw, while in the previous round Newcastle thrashed Morecambe 7-0.
Newport themselves are in good shape coming into the game, with Flynn’s side sitting pretty in third place in League Two after two consecutive wins against Barrow and Bolton.
Surprisingly, there is a a touch of value on Newcastle to move into the next round with the price of 1/2 a tempting proposition.
Those who expect another Newport upset can back the home win at around 6/1.
Looking at the first goalscorer, Newcastle’s Miguel Almiron & Jacob Murphy head the top of the markets – the pair can be backed at around 5/1 to find the net first in the match while Allan Saint-Maximin can be backed at 6/1 to open the scoring first.
The odds imply that this could be cagey affair with little goal action – surprising considering the gulf in class between these two sides.
The 6/4 offered on Newcastle to score 3 or more goals looks the bet of the game, and is sure to attract plenty of attention from punters.
