Plymouth Argyle Preparation

Newport County AFC will be putting a Macleod Cover over the Rodney Parade pitch on Tuesday morning as preparation for the FA Cup Second Round Replay with Plymouth Argyle on Wednesday evening.  

The Macleod Cover which is being provided by Sport and Stadia Ltd has been used at a number of sporting venues and Football Stadiums including Brighton and Hove Albion’s Amex Stadium. The Macleod Cover will be blown up via a generator being provided by Temporary Power Solutions.

Newport County AFC Chairman of Operations Gavin Foxall said “ Club Officials have been working closely with the Football Association and Rodney Parade staff to ensure the game goes  without any issues.  The Dome has been at the heart of those discussions given recent problems with the pitch. Our thanks go to all involved. “
