PREVIEW: Newport County vs Harrogate Town

14 January 2022

Newport County could give debuts to their two new signings as we are set to welcome to Harrogate Town to Rodney Parade.

Two new faces arrived at the club during the week as Josh Pask signed a loan deal until the end of the season from Championship Coventry while James Waite penned an 18-month deam from Penybont.

Saturday will be County's second and hopefully final game behind closed doors this season, as the Welsh Government have lifted restrictions from January 21. 

Newport have no fresh injury or COVID concerns within the playing squad, however manager James Rowberry will miss the game due to a diagnosis while captain Matt Dolan will likely be left out due to a lack of training following the completion of his isolation period.

County will be looking to get their first win of the calendar year as a 3-3 draw with Walsall on New Year's Day was followed up by defeat against Salford last Saturday. 

Harrogate meanwhile are without a win in four with their last win coming way back on November 23 which preceded a draw at Swindon and three defeats on the spin against Forest Green, Northampton and Sutton and sit 13th in League Two.

The two teams have only ever played each other three times, with the meeting in Harrogate earlier in the season finishing in a 2-2 draw while the last meeting at Rodney Parade was a 2-1 win for County.
