Newport County News
Newport packed the midfield against Charlton in the previous round and given their inability to play possession football, look set to repeat the trick against Brentford. A 4-5-1 is likely to be their starting formation for the game. Nick Townsend should start in goal behind the back four of Adam Lewis, Ryan Delaney, James Clarke and Shane McLoughlin. Scot Bennett should hold the fort in midfield with the quartet of Henry Charsley, James Waite, Bryn Morris and Will Evans playing further upfield. Seb Palmer-Houlden should lead the line and should be joined up front by Evans on the counter.

Newport County vs Brentford EFL Cup Match Preview
With home support to boot, one can expect Brian Coughlan’s men to dig in and make a game of the opportunity. Brentford, meanwhile, are flying high after establishing themselves as Premier League regulars. Thomas Frank should now be plotting the next step in his side’s evolution and a good cup run would be a welcome boost. As far as trophies are concerned, the League Cup represents The Bees’ best chance of silverware this season.
Shandon Baptiste is ruled out with a shoulder injury while Josh Dasilva is still nursing a thigh concern. Ben Mee is also a doubt for the game, having missed the club’s three league clashes so far. A 4-3-3 formation appears to be the solution for the night with reserve goalkeeper Ellery Balcome in goal. He will be protected by the back four of Rico Henry, Ethan Pinnock, Nathan Collins and Aaron Hickey. 📸 Backing the boys Onto the new week 👊 pic. com/TBbWeEX0iB — Brentford FC (@BrentfordFC) August 27, 2023 The Exiles don’t stress too much on possession and are adept at launching the ball upfront on the first opportunity. How well Brentford win the second balls on the night could set the pace of the game.
How well the Newport ace can play off the last man could determine their chances of securing an upset. Probable Lineup (4-5-1): Townsend; Lewis, Delaney, Clarke, McLoughlin; Bennet, Morris, Evans, Waite, Charsley; Palmer-Houlden Brentford The Bees have picked up five points from their first three Premier League games, including a stellar 3-0 win over Fulham. Frank’s men are dangerous in possession and are expected to keep much of the ball in the game. Player to player, the visitors are way stronger than their less illustrious hosts and this could see them make a few changes to their playing XI. While it would be too much for them to swap out the entire XI, there should be a few unfamiliar faces in the matchday squad.
Despite averaging just over 40 per cent possession this season, Newport have managed to record the seventh most shots (70) in League Two with the fourth most on target (26). This is the first meeting between both teams since 1987 when they were both in the third division of English football. Both teams enjoyed their best run in the League Cup in 2020-21.
