Salford City will travel to Newport County in the second round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The Ammies first played Newport in 2019, winning 2-1 at Rodney Parade in their SkyBet League Two encounter. They then won again in a 6-5 penalty shoot-out in February, which sent them through to the EFL Trophy Final.

Newport have had a brilliant start to the season and are currently top of the League Two table, with eight wins in eleven matches.

Salford City are just above midway in tenth place.

In the first round, Newport beat Leyton Orient, 2-1, and will be hoping to reach the third round again where they were previously knocked out last season.

Both teams will be fighting for a big win which will result in a lucrative package. Newport going into this game will be the clear favourites however, there is a mixed reaction from fans.

This match is due to be played between Friday 27th and Monday 30th November.
