Newport County are stuck in mid-table in EFL League Two and manager Graham Coughlan has little to lose in this game and will go with a first-choice starting XI.

Newport County vs Man United prediction

The gap between the two sides in terms of league standing will be reduced by home advantage for Newport and hostile atmosphere for United at Rodney Parade.

United showed enough grit to get past EFL League One side Wigan Athletic away from home in the previous round and they should edge this one.

Prediction: Newport County 0-1 Man United
