Newport head into this game looking for a good performance to get back to winning ways. Following a disappointing Boxing Day at Ebbw Vale, where they were in control for long periods but somehow lost the game, they will be determined to put thing right. RGC are a strong outfit with strengths throughout the team. They are strong up front and will run the ball from any part of the pitch. RGC are 6th in the league with 27 points whereas the Black & ambers are 7th with 25 points. A win would move us up at least one place.
For Newport, Elliot Ferriman returns after injury and Lloyd Lewis starts on the wing. New signing Matt Bancroft is among the replacements and his versatility means he will see some action.
