    I didn't check who they played but still a very good confidence builder for Newport going to a Championship club and winning.

    Really enjoyed that, glad I decided to go. Great atmosphere for the crowd hope they only open bottom tiers from now on for early games.

    Not sure how we didn’t have a penalty or three! Thankfully the team made sure it didn’t matter.

    Great night, great win, great entertainment.

    I'm a bit worried about Town's form as they may want Critchlow back.

    Can only echo what others have said, great night, great game, great atmosphere. Less than 6 thousand but the best atmosphere I've heard for a long time.

    Watched on Sky and such a good win.
    Thought we were good value and should have had at least one more goal.

    Really think we’re going places with Sparky.

    He looks like a player that will follow the Luke O’Brien trajectory following a loan at City.

    Let’s hope his season here is somewhat more successful.

    I like all the loan players we have this season.
    Crichlow, Harratt and Banks have all impressed so far.

    I know it’s an unpopular but I thought the balance was better tonight with Gillead alongside Smallwood

    I think you recognise that it's an unpopular view as you are aware that most think the partnership with East is looking more promising. Not definitive yet though. I thought our centre midfield improved after the substitution. I would favour East over Gillead

    I don’t think that’s the unpopular opinion at all. It’s clear Gilliead is good in possession but still looks forward.
    I agree, would prefer him in the middle

    Think both Smallwood and Gilliead grew into the game after making uninspiring start, but as already said I think East has something.
    Lets be honest though, we are going to need all of the squad over the course of the season - particularly if we have a couple of Cup runs :blush:

    Thoroughly deserved win.

    I thought he played well. I suspect that with the 3 attacking midfielders all being fairly green, Hughes wanted to add a bit more experience to the centre of the park.

    All in all, a successful and entertaining evening.

    Really enjoyed tonight's game, thought we may struggle after Hull scored first , they seemed to be controlling the game at that point. We did well to come back so quickly and showed great desire and resilience in the second half.
    Think the team is still evolving and learning how to play, at the moment it feels a little to possession orientated, but once we get the balance right between possession and positive attacking play, then I feel we have a team that can be competitive in this league

    Nothing wrong with east just think Gillead fits that position perfectly he is a bit more mobile and better defensively. But like other positions we are well covered. But it will be different again on Saturday when we take on a team with league two tactics
