All the facts you need, ahead of Tuesday's Checkatrade Trophy tie against Swansea at Rodney Parade.

Looking at the visitors

Swansea City’s Under 21s were dominated in the opening round match in the Checkatrade Trophy in their 3-0 defeat to AFC Wimbledon. The Dons managed three times as many shots as Swansea and scored more goals than the Swans had shots on target. A loss for either County or Swansea in this fixture will mean that they cannot progress out of the group stages, despite still having a game to play.

Last Time Out

An 88th minute penalty meant that Newport County lost their third game in a row in a match that would prove to be the last for manager Warren Feeney. Although the stats of the game were relatively even the decision to award the spot kick three minutes from time proved to be the nail in the coffin for the Exiles, who now sit at the bottom of the League 2 table.
