Stadium Rodney Parade
Time at Club:
Newport County appointed Graham Westley as their manager in October 2016, with the former Peterborough boss replacing the sacked Warren Feeney in the dugout. Feeney was sacked following a poor start to the season, and it's now up to Westley to pick up the pieces and change the club's fortunes.
Newport won the Welsh Cup back in 1980, and went on to impressively reach the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup Winner's Cup. However, the end of the 80s was a disaster, with the club suffering relegation from the Football League (1988), before subsequently going out of business a year later. The club reformed shortly after but were forced to begin life down in the Hellenic League, which was four divisions below the Football League.
The Exiles have enjoyed a successful time of late, during which they have won promotion twice in the last four years, from Conference South up to League Two. The Welsh side will now be looking to build on their impressive showing back in the Football League, which saw them secure a 14th place finish in 2014/15, but just avoided the drop last term.
Newport County have not recorded a win in the last 10 games, forcing 3 draws against Colchester United, Plymouth Argyle and Plymouth Argyle. Defeats to Stevenage, Wycombe Wanderers, Exeter City, Portsmouth, Crawley Town, Stevenage and Blackpool has seen them concede 22 goals at an average of 2.2 per game while scoring just 8 to give them a -14 goal difference over this period.
