PREVIEW: Newport County v Forest Green Rovers

Forest Green Rovers travel to Newport County tomorrow night, where they will play an extreme weather-forced rearranged fixture at Rodney Parade.

FGR will be looking to move further clear of relegation, given that only six points separate them from Chesterfield in the drop zone.

Rovers turned a disappointing January into an impressive February, and are unbeaten in four in League Two. Meanwhile the Exiles are without a win in six league games, having last won in mid-January.

In the reverse fixture this season, County strolled to a comprehensive 4-0 victory over the Greens at The New Lawn, where the Welsh club’s leading goalscorer this season, Padraig Amond, scored a brace.
