Fleetwood for a Fiver
This is Newport County AFC's fifth home game in two weeks against Fleetwood Town FC on Tuesday 4th March and it is £5 admission for all sections of the ground (excluding hospitality) and tickets have been selling well on Monday with queues already in evidence throughout the day at the Rodney Parade ticket office.
The weather forecast is looking good for Tuesday so get on down to Rodney Parade to cheer the lads on and re-create the atmosphere that was in evidence Saturday against Scunthorpe United!
Justin Edinburgh has reported no new injuries worries after Saturday and was full of praise for the fans backing at the weekend:
'The atmosphere was what we have come to expect at home games on Saturday and we need to take that into Tuesday's game against Fleetwood. The crowd play a major part and that was in evidence against Scunthorpe with our last minute equaliser. We need everyone's help for Tuesday night's game and myself and the players can't wait to have a large crowd cheering us on and we are looking forward to it.'
Fleetwood Town start the first of 3 successive away games at Newport County AFC and Graham Alexander is mindful of how the games are coming thick and fast as he told the official Fleetwood Town website:
“We’ve got a quick turnaround after Saturday’s game and there are two long trips this week, so we have to look after the players physically as best as we can.
“We need to travel down and be best prepared for the game as possible. We’re looking to recover from Saturday and I’m sure there will be a game on this time.
“It was disappointing to have the original game called off having travelled, but this is just part of the course.”
The Fleetwood boss is waiting to hear the extent of Bobby Grant’s injury which the on-loan Blackpool winger picked up against the Wombles on Saturday.
“The surgeon who saw him before is seeing him again so we’ll just have to wait and see on Bobby - we just hope he’s okay,” said Alexander.
Tickets are on sale until kick off and Newport County AFC strongly advise supporters to get down to Rodney Parade early to avoid potential queues at the turnstiles with tickets priced at £5.
Those fans who have already bought tickets at the original price will need to obtain their reimbursement by 5:00pm on Tuesday March 4th from the ticket office at Rodney Parade.
In order to avoid lengthy queues we would advise supporters who have to collect pre-booked tickets to try and do so before 7:30pm.
