DERBY County have booked a date at Rodney Parade to take on Newport County AFC in the second round of the FA Cup later this month, writes Andrew Penman.

The Rams enjoyed a comfortable 5-0 win over National League side Torquay in Tuesday night’s replay at Pride Park after a 2-2 draw at Plainmoor.

They will now travel to Newport to face the Exiles, who beat Colchester United 2-0 in the first round, on Sunday, November 27 (3.15pm kick-off), live on ITV.

Tickets are now on sale via the club website, over the phone on 01633 302012 and from the ticket office at Rodney Parade from 10am to 5pm Monday to Friday.

Season tickets are not valid for this game, but season ticket holders’ seats will be held until 3pm this Friday.

Tickets will cost from £20 to £22 for adults, £18 for seniors, £14 to £16 for young adults, £10 for under-16s and £8 for under-12s, while under-6s get free admission.

It will be the first time the sides have met since April 1986 when they drew 1-1 at Somerton Park with Terry Boyle on target for the home side.

Derby are now in League One after relegation from the Championship under Wayne Rooney last season but they were Premier League stalwarts in the late 1990s and early 2000s and were champions of England in 1972 and 1975.

The Rams will be the seventh former top-flight champions to travel to Rodney Parade in cup competitions over the last six years, following the visits of Blackburn Rovers, Leeds United, Tottenham Hotspur, Leicester City, Manchester City and Newcastle United.
