Newport County AFC are appealing for volunteers to go to Rodney Parade today at 3pm to help get the pitch ready for tomorrow night's match against AFC Wimbledon.

The plea comes as hired rain covers, that are lifted away from the pitch by hot air blowers, are installed by a specialist firm later this afternoon.

The club asks if volunteers could bring spades with them.

A Newport County spokesman said: "We understand how much help has already gone into working on the pitch and we thank everyone for their efforts."

Anyone who can help this afternoon is asked to call Jordan Royal on 01633 670690.
