Exiles a big price for cup shock

Betting Tip: Newport +1.00 @ 1/1 with bet365

There will be a full-ish house at Rodney Parade this evening, with Newport County getting the S4C cameras for their game against Championship opponents in the FA Cup.

The Welsh side were hit during last week with the news that John Sheridan was leaving for Boundary Park and a second management spell with Oldham Athletic.

However, Warren Feeney now has the reins and he saw County claim a 1-0 win at York on Saturday, with an early Aaron Collins goal landing a blow for the visitors.

It gives the Exiles a bit of breathing space near the foot of League Two and they will now fancy their chances of causing an upset against an off-colour Blackburn team who are having a tricky season in the Championship.

Rovers are without a win in their last six matches, with Paul Lambert’s side having lost four of their past five games and do not look like bankers for this clash.

Jordan Rhodes has failed to score in his past nine matches and any away win tonight will surely be achieved by a tight margin, although Feeney will send out his players knowing they have little to lose from having a go.
