Boro V Newport County FA Cup 4th Round 1-1 (Ayala)

Recommended Posts

Good OP DS. Our transporter is far better than theirs. Theirs just looks like the forth road bridge on stilts.

 

Hope vlp gets 70 minutes plus. We need him fit so he can play league games.

 

Think we'll win this. Newport won't be as up for a boring game against Boro as they were for a TV tie against the recent premier league champions. 2-0 Boro. VLP and Ayala to score

Tony Pulis says some of his squad have come down with a flu bug. There’ll be a roll call tomorrow to see who’s feeling well enough to face Newport

It'd be pretty funny if the only players fit were our first team.

 

We should be able to put the kids out and win though, really.

Predicted XI

 

Dimi

McNair--Batth--Fry--Friend

Mikel

Tavernier--Wing

Fletcher                                        VLP

Britt

 

Score Prediction. 

 

Middlesbrough 3-0 Newport County

Britt, (16,49)

Tavernier (63)

 

Think this one should be relatively straight forward, think it would be a different story at their place. Don't think we'll conceed but I don't see us running away with it like we did in the last round.

 

 

Like that as a team and will be equally happy with that score.

Did Pulis say whether Mikel will be available tomorrow?

He needs international clearance and also a work permit so no.

Just thought that would be wrapped up faily quick as he was a free agent and a regular for his country.

Newport are expected to lose but buoyed by their win against Leicester I think they'll give a battling performance, I think we'll edge it 2-1 but not without a few uncomfortable moments.

Good game for VLP to get 90 minutes under his belt. Will be a bit of a shame if its too early for Mikel as he could do with some competetive minutes too.

 

Think we'll win but expect a tougher game than the Peterborough one.

Taken from the mfc website:

 

"Meanwhile, Boro are optimistic of gaining international clearance for John Obi Mikel in time for tomorrow's game, but Tony Pulis has said his new signing requires patience"

He hasn't played for months, I think it'll be a few weeks before we see him on pitch at least.

Whilst we are battling against Newport there are some fixtures of interest being played in The Championship and certainly a battle for second spot.

 

Games are as follows:

 

Rotherham V Leeds

Villa V Ipswich Town

Norwich V Sheffield United

Forest V Wigan

Stoke V PNE

Blackburn V Hull City.
