Newcastle United thumped Morecambe 7-0 in the last round and now have League Two Newport County standing between them a place in Carabao Cup quarter-finals. Can the Magpies avoid a slip up at Rodney Parade on Wednesday and book a spot in the last eight?

Newport County Form

Michael Flynn's side have made an encouraging start to the season, losing just one of their seven games since. That came in the EFL Trophy in a 1-0 loss to Cheltenham.

In League Two, two wins and a draw have Newport sat in third spot. They were 2-0 winners over Bolton at the weekend with Tristan Abrahams' match-winning double taking his tally to five goals in seven games this season.

Newport reached the fourth round of the Carabao after winning a Welsh derby against Swansea 2-0 courtesy of two more Abrahams goals, a 1-0 win over Cambridge United and a 3-1 win over Watford.

Newport County Team News

Newport are expected to name the same side which defeated Bolton on Saturday as they bid to reach to League Cup quarter-finals for the first time.

Newcastle United Form

Two goals from Joelinton and further strikes from Miguel Almiron, Jacob Murphy, Isaac Hayden, Jamaal Lascelles saw Newcastle United record a 7-0 win over Morecambe in the third round of the Carabao Cup last week. Newcastle had beaten Blackburn 1-0 at home in the second round.

In the Premier League, things have been a little more of a struggle for Steve Bruce's side since they won 2-0 at West Ham on the opening weekend. 

Since then, the Magpies were beaten 3-0 at home to Brighton without registering a shot on target. They had failed to test Hugo Lloris either prior to being awarded a penalty by VAR two minutes from time against Tottenham on Sunday. Callum Wilson slotted home to earn a point from a 1-1 draw.

Newcastle United Team News

Steve Bruce is likely to make a number of changes once against for the League Cup tie, but Allan Saint-Maximin remains a doubt and Ciaran Clark and Ryan Fraser will also need a late test. 

Goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, defenders Fabian Schar and Paul Dummett, midfielder Matty Longstaff and forward Dwight Gayle are still on the sidelines. Matt Ritchie joins them after suffering a shoulder injury against Tottenham.

Newport vs Newcastle Head to Head
