Newport County vs Brentford odds and betting statistics



Newport County vs Brentford match preview

Brentford were dumped out in the third round of this competition by Gillingham last season, so will they avoid an equally embarrassing exit here?

The Bees are currently unbeaten in the Premier League this season, holding both Tottenham and Crystal Palace to draws, whilst battering West London rivals Fulham at Craven Cottage in-between.

On Saturday, Kevin Schade broke the deadlock, his first goal for the club, before Palace snatched an equaliser later on.

Here, will Thomas Frank’s team march through to round three?

This’ll actually be a first meeting between Newport County and Brentford since 1987, with the two playing out a 2-2 draw in the third division back then.

These days, the Exile ply their trade in League Two, currently flying high in sixth place, following a 3-1 victory over Sutton United on Saturday.

Since 2017, the Welsh club have claimed the notable scalps of Leeds, Leicester, Middlesbrough and Watford, all at home, but Brentford are likely to be simply too strong at Rodney Parade.
