Newport County Preview

Newport County suffered a minor setback in their League Two playoff push at the weekend after conceding towards the end of the second half to draw 1-1 at home to struggling Morecambe. Ben Tozer put the home side in front after 15 minutes, but the Welsh outfit were pegged back thirteen minutes from time when Michael Rose netted from the penalty spot to leave Newport out of the playoff places at the end of the afternoon. Despite the frustrations, Michael Flynn’s side are still unbeaten in seven games at home in recent weeks, last losing at Rodney Parade back in late November, two months before they welcome Spurs across the bridge. Having produced one of the shocks of the third round by knocking Championship side Leeds United out of the competition with a 2-1 win at home, Newport will now be looking to even outdo their own efforts against a side a division higher than their previous opponents. Reaching this stage of the competition via three home wins, they will look to make it as uncomfortable a trip as possible for the Premier League side here.

Newport County Team News

Veteran midfielder Darren Jones is available once again after serving a two-game suspension.

Tottenham Hotspur Preview

Tottenham’s virus-hit squad lacked cutting edge last weekend, after being held to a frustrating 1-1 draw away to Southampton - missing out on the chance to move into the top four in doing so. The home side came out with greater urgency and were rewarded for their strong start when Ryan Bertrand’s cross was turned into his own net by defender Davinson Sanchez. It proved to be something of a wake-up call for Spurs, who levelled just three minutes after going behind when Harry Kane headed in Ben Davies’ corner, though Mauricio Pochettino’s side - who were without Hugo Lloris and Christian Eriksen through illness - could not build on it to take all three points. Lloris and Eriksen were one of a number of players to be affected by a bug before the game, though they were the only pair to miss out. With a week to recover, Pochettino will hope to have his full contingent together, having played a surprisingly strong side when Tottenham faced League One side Wimbledon in the third round of the FA Cup. With just one defeat in 10 and winning four of their last six in the Premier League, Spurs appear to be heading into a strong run of form at a vital time of the season and will be wary of complacency creeping in here.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News

Toby Alderweireld (hamstring), Danny Rose (knee) and Harry Winks (ankle) will all be assessed, while Hugo Lloris and Christian Eriksen will hope to return from illness.
