By David Williams

Last updated:

    Newport County are away to League Two rivals Grimsby Town in the FA Cup first round at Blundell Park in Cleethorpes (kick-off 3pm).
  • County reached the fifth round last season, losing 4-1 to Manchester City after beating Leicester City and Middlesbrough on the way.
  • Skipper Joss Labadie returns from suspension and Josh Sheehan is available before serving a ban.
  • The league fixture between the two next Saturday, also at Blundell Park, has been postponed because of County's three international call-ups.
