Without a game in what feels like ages (ok, there was some match in the EFL Trophy, but the less said, the better about that), Oldham travel to South Wales for their fifth ever match at Newport County. After a gap of nearly 50 years, Oldham returned there in April this year and lost 2-0 as their season petered out.

The home team’s league form isn’t so good, but they have scored nine in two cup matches in the last 10 days – more than half as many as they’ve scored in 16 league matches. It’s hard to escape that seventh placed Newport are strong favourites.
