EBBW VALE vs NEWPORT

Newport travel the relatively short distance to face old rivals Ebbw Vale. There is a good feeling in the camp at the moment following a fine victory against a powerful Merthyr side.  The first game at Newport Stadium went well with an exciting game on the pitch and a good crowd enjoying the new surroundings. Ebbw has had a mixed start to the season with two wins and two losses but they will always raise their game against the Black & Ambers.

Although Newport still have a few injuries the coaching team has the luxury of leaving good players out of the match day twenty-three. Fit again Elliot Frewen comes in on his usual wing position and Rhys Jenkins is ready to make an impact off the bench.

Newport:  Jamie Jeune, Will Griffiths, Garin Harris, Josh Skinner, Joe Bartlett, Lennon Greggains, Kyle tayler, Ben Roach, Luke Crane, Will Reed, Elliot Frewen, Matt O’Brien, Jon Morris, Oli Andrew, George Gladding.

Replacements:  Henry Palmer, Lewis Smout, Dan Suter, Elliot Ferriman, Rhys Jenkins, Geraint Watkin, Jack Wright, Dafydd Smith.
