Eastleigh v Newport County Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 7.45pm UK Time, Tuesday 16th January 2024

 

Eastleigh and Newport County lock horns this evening at the Silverlake Stadium in an FA Cup third round replay, both sides having played out a 1-1 in the original tie at Rodney Parade earlier this month.

Eastleigh and Newport County two of the lowest ranked ranked sides left in this season’s FA Cup and they will pit their wits against each other tonight for the chance to face one of the giants of English football, namely Manchester United. Eastleigh have reached this stage of the competition twice before when they were sent packing by Bolton Wanderers in 2015/16 and Brentford in 2016/17 and they managed to secure a draw at Rodney Parade despite being a man down for the entirety of the second half, George Langston having been sent off in the 38th minute. The south-coast side saw their winless run across competitions extended to four games when they lost 1-0 at home to Southend United last time out and they will face a tough task tonight against a Newport County side which have won each of their last four FA Cup replays.

Newport’s draw with Eastleigh extended their unbeaten run to four games and they followed it up with a 1-0 win away to Doncaster Rovers on Saturday afternoon. The Exiles will look to extend this unbeaten streak to six outings in tonight’s match and we fancy their chances of setting themselves up for a fourth-round clash with Manchester United. Indeed, it’s hard to overlook Newport’s healthier run of form here and with the South Wales side very well versed in winning cup replays, we’ll be siding with them to edge their way to a slender win in this one.

 

Back Newport County to win-to-nil at best odds of 9/2
