Newport v Manchester United – Football & Racing News – Star Sports

Newport County have set their sights on pulling off one of the all-time great FA Cup shocks on Sunday afternoon as they welcome Erik Ten Hag’s Manchester United to Rodney Parade for their Fourth Round clash.

Newport needed a replay in the Third Round to make it this far as they were held by National League side Eastleigh in the first match before defeating them 3-1 at the Silverlake Stadium in the replay.

Considering that Newport are operating on one of the smallest budgets in League Two, it has been a fairly solid season for Graham Coughlan’s side and they come into this one in good form.

The Exiles are unbeaten in their last five league matches, winning their last two, which included a morale-boosting win over Welsh rivals Wrexham in their most recent outing.

Of course, they have got a hell of a job on their hands on Sunday if they are to defeat Manchester United.

However, as we know with the FA Cup, anything can happen on the day…

First ever meeting between two sides

United must be expecting a fairly straightforward afternoon on Sunday but, if they fall into the trap of taking their opponents too lightly, they will run the risk of being the victim of an FA Cup upset for the ages.

Considering how disappointing United’s campaign has been to date, the last thing Ten Hag needs is the ramifications of an FA Cup upset to a side three divisions below them in the football pyramid.

However, although it can be difficult to trust this Manchester United side at times, they should have enough to get over the line here.

That said, it wouldn’t shock me if Newport pinched a goal here and that is why I am drawn to a bet of an away win and both teams to score at 6/4 with starsports.bet.
