Millwall

Last updated: Sat 04 January 2020 09:40
In Brief

Millwall in superb win over Luton. No new injuries reported.

Looking Back

Millwall have got themselves into the top six in the Championship so must decide whether to give the FA Cup a good go this season having had a few runs in recent seasons.

Came from behind to win 3-1 at home to Luton on Wednesday with Matt Smith and Tom Bradshaw both impressing and Connor Mahoney netting his first for the club.

Looking Ahead

Lions may decide to rest some players for this game with Gary Rowett considering alterations. But no new injury issues have been reported.

Frank Fielding, Ryan Leonard, Tom Elliott and Ben Thompson all remain out.

Points of Interest

Have seven wins, four draws and two defeats at home in the league this season.

Newport County

Last updated: Sat 04 January 2020 09:05
In Brief

Kyle Howkins and Mark O'Brien back in contention; Mickey Demetriou, Joss Labadie and Lewis Collins doubtful; Danny McNamara ineligible; Taylor Mahoney recalled from loan.

Looking Back

Newport County had to settle for a point after conceding a late equaliser to draw 1-1 with Cheltenham Town at Rodney Parade.

The Exiles are now without a win in their last nine league matches; collecting just four points from a possible 27.

Manager Michael Flynn named an unchanged starting line-up with Tom King, George Nurse and Tristan Abrahams keeping their places.

Looking Ahead

Flynn will check on the fitness of Mickey Demetriou and Joss Labadie after they were forced off with knocks on New Year's Day.

Mark O'Brien (illness) and Kyle Howkins (head) are back in contention whilst Lewis Collins will be hoping to return from illness.

Danny McNamara cannot face his parent club under the terms of his loan.

Dan Leadbitter (knee surgery), Robbie Willmott (calf), Corey Whitely (knee) and Adebayo Azeez (Achilles) remain sidelined.

Taylor Mahoney has returned to parent club Charlton Athletic after being recalled from his loan.

Points of Interest

It will be the first competitive meeting between the two sides since Newport County reformed in 1989.
