    Warning for anyone intending to buy their ticket at Newport. According to the latest info from City, it's cash only.

    As Newport seem to be a few hundred years behind the times, the prices are:
    Adults 1,200 groats
    Over 60s 1,080 groats

    Game will be on, wonder where the lads trained today though, as even the 4G pitches will have been a struggle in this.

    Last time I saw City play at Newport was back in the 70s at Somerton Park, probably the worst ground I have ever visited

    The Football Grounds Guide Website is always an excellent place to do some research.

    Here is their paragraph about pubs.

    Generally, the area around the ground is not particularly great, with the nearest pub, the Victoria Hotel on Corporation Road looking particularly uninviting. A little further along Corporation Road is the Excelsior Club which does allow in away fans, shows televised sports and is family friendly (see below). There is a Wetherspoon pub on Chepstow Road called the Godfrey Morgan. This spacious pub is only a 10 minute walk from the away turnstiles and for some unknown reason on my visit seemed to have few home fans in attendance. The pub has the added benefit that along Chepstow Road there are a number of food outlets including a couple of fish and chip shops and a Greggs Bakery. Otherwise, the city centre is a 10-15 minute walk away where there are plenty of pubs to be found including three more Wetherspoons outlets. Two of these the John Wallace Linton in Cambrian Road and the Queen’s Hotel in Bridge Street are located quite close to the railway station.

    Neil Le Milliere recommends; ‘The Tiny Rebel in the High Street. It has an excellent choice of beers from the local brewery, excellent food, lots of room and a great value carry out for the train home! Also further along the High Street is a Sam Smiths pub called the Ye Olde Murenger. It is also worth a visit and has a great collection of football mugs’. Both these pubs are listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. Neil also adds; ‘We’ve used the Lamb pub on Bridge Street in the town centre. It is both welcoming and serves great real ale’.

    They also provide advice about travel/parking. https://footballgroundguide.com/leagues/england/league-two/rodney-parade-newport-county.html

    Crewe getting a home win tonight would go down nicely.

    Great finish to the game, if the kid Beadle is still in goal for Crewe we should bombard him with crosses he was coming for them and getting no where near them.

    And all of a sudden our point at Walsall looks like a very good point in the circumstances. Now just need to back it up with 3 tomorrow
