Newport County v Newcastle United: Live updates

Mike Flynn's Newport County welcome Premier League outfit Newcastle United to Rodney Parade tonight in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.

The Exiles have carved themselves out to be something of cup specialists in recent years and will want to further enhance that reputation with another big scalp tonight.

County have already dumped Championship sides Swansea City and Watford out of the competition so far to get to this stage, while they have started their League Two campaign in impressive fashion, too.

Steve Bruce's Newcastle, however, will doubtless have their sights set on spoiling the party in the Welsh city this evening, with the Magpies coming off the back of a 7-0 mauling of Morecambe in the last round.

We will be bringing you all the build-up, team news and live match action from Rodney Parade.
