Newport County v Swansea City - Preview

New signings set to feature as Newport host Swansea in Carabao Cup

Newport’s new faces could make an appearance when the Exiles host Swansea in the Carabao Cup first round on Saturday.

Scot Bennett, Ryan Taylor, Liam Shephard and David Longe-King have all headed to Rodney Parade during the summer, while Scott Twine and Saikou Janneh have arrived on loan.

Taylor and Janneh were on target as Newport wrapped up their pre-season schedule with a 4-0 win against Hereford last weekend.

Manager Michael Flynn says all of his players are in “good shape” ahead of the cup tie.

Swansea could give debuts to new arrivals Korey Smith, Jamal Lowe and Morgan Gibbs-White, while goalkeeper Freddie Woodman is back at the club for a second loan stint from Newcastle.

Steve Cooper will, however, have to make do without a number of players who are on international duty.

Connor Roberts and Ben Cabango (Wales), Bersant Celina (Kosovo), Marc Guehi (England U21) and Liam Cullen (Wales U21) are among those who have joined up with their national teams.

Questions remain over the future of Swansea captain Matt Grimes, who has been linked with a move to Watford this week.

    Tristan Abrahams double dumps Swansea out of Carabao Cup

    Tristan Abrahams hit both goals for the Exiles.

    Newport produced another big knock-out shock as they claimed a 2-0 win over Swansea to progress to the second round of the Carabao Cup.

    Mike Flynn's League Two Newport have beaten Leicester, Leeds and Middlesbrough, drawn with Tottenham, and faced Manchester City in the last two seasons.

    The Exiles repeated those heroics in an all-Welsh derby clash with Swansea thanks to two first-half goals from striker Tristan Abrahams.

    Newport fully deserved their win against Championship side Swansea who were poor from start to finish.

    Swansea handed a full debut to Wolves loanee Morgan Gibbs-White, but they were soon behind.

    Steve Cooper's visitors were too passive in defence and when Ryan Haynes headed across goal Swansea goalkeeper Freddie Woodman appealed for offside.

    It was not given and Abrahams tapped in.

    Swansea had started poorly before the goal and they did not improve even after falling behind despite Jamal Lowe firing wide.

    Haynes nearly made it 2-0 to Newport when he cut inside on his weaker right foot and forced Woodman into a save.

    Abrahams – who was left unmarked – also failed to connect cleanly with a header from Lewis Collins' cross in what was a glorious opportunity for the Newport striker.

    He soon made amends as the he chased a long ball and when Woodman came to clear he could only boot the ball into Abrahams who gobbled up the rebound and slotted into an empty net.

    Wayne Routledge had Swansea's first shot on target at the start of the second half after being played in by a lovely pass from Ayew. Gibbs-White also dragged wide.

    At the other end Newport's Scott Twine tried an audacious 30-yard shot which had Woodman scrambling across his goal in panic and Abrahams also called Woodman into action again.

    Newport were the better team with captain Matty Dolan outstanding in an unusual position at the heart of his team's defence, but Routledge did have a goal ruled out for offside.

    Swansea made a triple substitution in search of a comeback and captain Matt Grimes hit a post, but there was never any danger of Newport throwing victory away.
