Scunthorpe come into the match on the back of a 3-0 home victory over Northampton Town last weekend, which saw Lee Novak (two) and Kevin van Veen on target. It extended a run of just one defeat in seven games in all competitions for United, who still sit 22nd in the division but could climb a place should they be victorious against the Exiles this weekend.

The 2-2 draw away at Plymouth Argyle in our last fixture on the road two weeks ago saw Scunthorpe get their first away point of the season, and they will be looking to build on that at Rodney Parade.

Newport have had a decent start to their campaign after losing out in the play-off final last season and sit fifth in the table coming into the fixture. Their last league game was a fortnight ago, with them securing a 1-0 home victory over Carlisle United in stoppage time that took them into the top three. Having not played last weekend due to the international break, they fell down a couple of places and will be hoping to return into the promotion spots with a victory this weekend.


Manager Paul Hurst has confirmed there is still some illness in the camp, so the affected players will be assessed before the squad travel on Friday.

After coming off against Northampton last week, there is no fracture on Rory Watson's cheekbone or nose but the club has to go through the necessary protocol in terms of concussion, so a decision will be made on the goalkeeper following Friday morning's training session.

Kevin van Veen returned to full training on Tuesday after coming off against the Cobblers with an ankle injury.

Jamie Ward has recovered from illness and has trained, looking sharp ahead of the match. James Perch returns after returning to training following a hip flexor injury.

However, Hurst confirmed Kgosi Ntlhe is a doubt with a groin issue.

Jacob Bedeau (calf) has returned to training following a calf injury, while Jordan Hallam (ankle) is close to a return and will feature for the Under-23s at Bottesford next Wednesday all being well.

Meanwhile, Clayton Lewis is back with the club after his involvement for New Zealand Under-23s in their Olympic qualifying campaign.

George Miller (quad strain), John McAtee (shoulder) and Andy Dales (calf) remain absent, while Jordan Clarke is out following an appendix operation and is still at least a month away from any return.

Matthew Lund sits out the final game of a three-match suspension.


Our last game against the Exiles was in March 2014 when Paddy Madden and David Syers struck in a 2-2 draw. United were left disappointed on the day though as they were pegged back late on.

Match Reports

Report: Newport County 2-1 Iron

19 October 2019

The Iron were beaten 2-1 at Newport County on Saturday.

Padraig Amond struck right on half-time but the Iron levelled in the second period with Mark O’Brien left red faced after he turned the ball into his own net following James Perch’s cross.

However, the hosts re-took the lead through Josh Sheehan; his strike enough to seal the victory for the Exiles.

In the opening exchanges, Amond gave the Iron an early scare, drawing a save from Rory Watson after latching onto a pass down the left, but the ‘keeper palmed it away and Harrison McGahey cleaned up at the back.

Minutes later, Yann Songo’o headed wide for the Iron from from Ryan Colclough’s deep cross.

The Exiles were awarded a free-kick 20 yards out in the 12th minute. Ryan Haynes took the set-piece but fired over the bar from the edge of the box.

Jamie Proctor registered an effort on target, meeting a set piece floated in by Colclough but the header was comfortable for Newport shot-stopper Tom King.

Levi Sutton and Rory McArdle defended heroically, with Sutton’s initial clearance falling for an amber shirt and the skipper headed the ball away.

The hosts went close through Ryan Inniss with 18 minutes on the watch after Haynes picked out the defender at the back post, only for the former to skew his shot off target. Lee Novak then got his body in the way of a follow-up header and Watson eventually claimed the ball.

With 23 minutes played, Joss Labadie acrobatically took aim but his scissor kick is straight at Watson.

Mark O’Brien spurned a chance for Newport with 10 minutes to go until the interval after a knock-down from his teammate fell to the Irishman inside the area but he couldn’t keep his effort down.

In the 39th minute, Colclough’s corner was flicked on by James Perch but King tipped the ball over the bar. The number seven almost netted directly from the resulting corner, with his in-swinging delivery nearly finding the top corner.

On the stroke of half-time, Amond opened the scoring for the Exiles. Watson made a great save from Robbie Willmott’s free-kick but Amond squeezed the ball in at the near post to make it 1-0 in the last kick of the half.

At the start of the second period, Scot Bennett crossed for Jamille Matt but Watson made a point blank save to deny the latter from close range. The rebound bounced back off the number 11 and somehow stayed out.

The Iron equalised with 49 minutes gone after some good link-up play between Colclough and Gilliead. Mark O’Brien then converted James Perch’s cross into his own goal to make it 1-1.

Seven minutes later, the hosts restored the lead after Sheehan pounced on a loose ball on the edge of the area and fired Newport back in front with a first-time strike.

The Iron looked to respond immediately after some good work from Gilliead but Colclough’s powerful effort was blocked.

Lee Novak looked for a leveller after Perch’s cross from the right fell for him in the box but an amber shirt beat him to it, heading behind. In the next phase of play, Colclough laid the ball off to the striker but a Newport defender gets in the way of his effort.

In the 70th minute, McArdle did well to outmuscle Matt as the forward accelerated into the area and looked to get a shot away.

Watson made a save to deny Inniss, turning his effort behind with just over 10 minutes left of the contest. From the resulting corner, Novak made a goal-saving clearance on the line, well positioned to hack the ball away.

In the first minute of added time, McGahey took aim but his volley was King was equal to it, finishing 2-1 to the hosts.
