Grandstand: Exiles v Walsall (KO 7PM)

Postby reebok0165 » November 23rd, 2020, 4:54 pm

Tuesday 24th November.
Newport County v Walsall.
Matches between both clubs go back as far as 1927. Since the clubs first meeting in 1927 / 1928 when they competed in the former Division Three South, the clubs have met on sixty five occasions for competitive matches. County have twenty-five wins while Walsall have twenty-three.

1979 / 1980:
Probably the most memorable game between both clubs came in season 1979 / 1980 in the old Division Four, todays League Two. The first game between the two saw Walsall beat County 1-0 at Somerton Park
The final weekend of the season:
Walsall 2-4 Newport County.
A very large following of 6000+ County supporters to see County face Walsall at Fellows Park knowing that victory would guarantee promotion to Division Three. County were 2-0 ahead midway through the first half, both scored by John Aldridge. Player manager Alan Buckley reduced the deficit with a penalty before Dave Gwyther restored a two goal lead for County before half time. Very early in the second half, Don Penn reduced the deficit to a single goal with a low shot inside the box. Tommy Tynan headed a fourth for County, a lead they held, winning 4-2.
County were back in Division Three for the first time in eighteen years. With Walsall also gaining promotion as champions, both clubs competed against each other in Division Three for the next seven seasons.

2017 / 2018:
FA Cup Round One.
Newport County 2-1 Walsall.
Frank Nouble put County ahead on eighteen minutes against their opponents who were one tier above County at the time. Shawn McCoulsky double the lead in the first minute of the second half. Amadou Bakayoko got one back for Walsall with around fourteen minutes remaining but County held on for victory that would eventually see them reach Round Four.

2019 / 2020:
Walsall 0-0 Newport County.
A dull goalless draw with few chances created by either side and only two shots on target. County were unbeaten in their opening four league games.

Newport County 0-0 Walsall.
After this goalless draw, both sides remained mid table.

Managers:
Newport County - Mike Flynn.
Walsall - Darrell Clarke.

Head to head:
Mike Flynn 0
Darrell Clarke 0
Draws 2

Some of the players past / present who've had connections with both Newport County and Walsall:

Kevin Cooper
Paul Hall
Karl Darlow
George Johnston
Ian McLoughlin
Aaron Williams
Will Randall
Ian Turner
Cameron Pring
Neil Davis
Roy John
George Nurse
Emmanuel Osadebe

What's the odds that George Nurse will score a ''Worldie'' to earn the Saddlers a point or more from this game. He scored likewise for County v Carlisle at Rodney Parade on 90+6 in the 1-0 win last season and scored another wonder goal, this time for Walsall v Bradford this season. On saying that, he's not featured in Walsall's latest 3-4 games.

This has been asked before. I really dislike it when we are kept in the dark about players. Is he one of the three ready to return ?

The EFL iFollow app gives 7:45 for the ko for this match. I don't suppose this will fool anyone but the ko is at 7pm. Don't be late.

More balanced midfield with a tackler in there,I like Devitt but he is too similar to Twine and together is fine if we need to later in a game but not from the start.

It's awfully quiet. Is it just me or is there no commentary?

Edit: technical issue resolved.
