    Where have I heard that old Chestnut before?
    Yes and make it sound like a premier league team are coming to Rodney Parade! Last time I looked they were league 1 so just like playing Swindon! Hope there's still a premier league or championship team in the offing. Nevertheless Coventry are exiled in same way as we were so at least we can share tales of woe together!!"

NEWPORT County AFC will host Coventry City in a pre-season friendly at Rodney Parade on Tuesday, July 29, kick-off 7.30pm.

A club statement reads: "This will be a fine test for Justin Edinburgh's men and will conclude a busy period at Rodney Parade with FC Carl Zeiss Jena coming to the County the previous Saturday.

"Coventry City have a fine tradition including winning the FA Cup in 1987 in one of the most romantic of recent cup finals with a 3-2 win against Tottenham Hotspur.

"Goalkeeper that day Steve Ogrizovic is now on the coaching staff and Sky Blues Manager Steven Pressley is sure to bring a strong squad to Newport."

Ticket prices and further details will be announced in due course." The Argus understands that a further friendly will be arranged for Saturday, August 2, ahead of the League Two season opener on August 9.
