RODNEY Parade is set for a green and white invasion on August 17 as Plymouth Argyle have sold out their allocation of away tickets for the League Two clash with Newport County AFC.

The Pilgrims, who are amongst the favourites to win promotion this season, kicked off their campaign with an impressive 3-0 win at Crewe Alexandra last Saturday.

A total of 1,600 fans made the trip to Crewe to see their side mark the competitive beginning of the Ryan Lowe era in style.

And their allocation of 1,037 tickets for the trip to Newport have been completely snapped up, with County stating that there will be no more available for away supporters.

Plymouth’s most recent trip to Rodney Parade was in last season’s EFL Trophy when goals from Mark Harris and Antoine Semenyo earned the Exiles a 2-0 win.

Argyle’s last League Two visit to South Wales ended in a 3-1 win for the visitors in October 2016.

They also won an FA Cup replay at Rodney Parade that season, setting up a lucrative tie with Liverpool in the third round, and thrashed Michael Flynn’s men 6-1 at Home Park to seal promotion in April 2017.
