Match preview

Will three-times League Cup winners Leicester City remain on course to reach this season’s final?

In the previous round, the Foxes needed a penalty shootout to edge out fourth-tier Stockport County.

James Maddison and Ayoze PĂ©rez actually failed to convert from 12 yards, but they still squeezed through 3-1.

But, that was back in August, when Brendan Rodgers’ side were enduring a nightmare start to the campaign.

These days, Leicester have won three of their last four Premier League games, including Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Everton.

In fact, having accumulated 13 points from the last 21 available, they’ve leapt from bottom up to 14th in just over a month.

When these two last met in January 2019, Newport County prevailed, winning 2-1 in an FA Cup tie at Rodney Parade.

The Exiles have enjoyed a few FA Cup scalps in recent seasons, but have only ever reached the fourth round of this tournament once in their history.

So far this season, Graham Coughlan’s team have ousted Luton and Portsmouth, both 3-2, to set up this glamour tie.

Newport also ousted Colchester in the FA Cup on Saturday, but are currently down in 18th in League Two.

So, Leicester will surely be far too strong at the King Power, won’t they?
