Stagsnet statistical preview Newport

Postby Sweden Stag » Sat Oct 21, 2017 6:42 am

After the 1-1 draw at Barnet last Tuesday, the Stags are on the road again. This time, they travel to the side which followed the Stags back into League Two four years ago, Newport County.

And Newport pulled up a great escape last season. After being rock-bottom long time, and well adrift, the Exiles changed manager shortly after the 2-1 defeat at Mansfield and a disastrous 4-0 defeat at home to Leyton Orient. Out went Graham Westley, in came Michael Flynn. From then on, Newport won seven out of their remaining twelve fixtures and secured survival in the final minute of the 2016-17 campaign. An 89th minute home winner against Notts County sent Hartlepool out of League Two along with Leyton Orient.

Last season, the Stags won both ties against Newport. On the opening day of last season, an injury-time wonder strike by Kevan Hurst sealed the Stags’ first out of eight away victories, while at home, the Stags ran out 2-1 winners last February.

This season, Newport have started very well, winning half of their 14 games so far, yet lost at home to Colchester last time out. This is Newport’s best League Two start since the 2014-15 season, when they figured in the playoff zone before Justin Edinburgh departed for Gillingham. Since then, Newport had been closer to the drop zone than the playoff one.

This is the eighth consecutive season the Stags face the current Newport side, which came into being after the older one, formed in 1912, busted in February 1989 after two consecutive seasons from then Division Three 30 years ago (when the Stags beat Newport 1-0 at home and 3-0 away) to the current National League. By the time of the old Newport club leaving that league, Newport had won four games, drawn seven, and lost eighteen, their then final game being a 2-1 defeat away to the old Maidstone club, which a few months later gained entry to the old fourth division. During the 1988-89 season, Newport faced three current League Two sides: Wycombe, Barnet and Cheltenham as well as three which later played in the League, being Macclesfield, Kidderminster and Boston.

The Stags’ very first game away to the current Newport club on September 18, 2010, saw two twin brothers in the respective dug-outs. Dave Holdsworth for the Stags, Dean for Newport. But by the time of the return fixture at Mansfield, both had left. Dave resigned, while Dean left for the current Aldershot club.

Played for both sides: Walter Akers, Neville Chamberlain, Roddy Collins, Fred Flanders, Dai Jones, Kevin Kent, Terence Melling, John Moore, Tommy Pritchard, Mick Vinter, Alan Waddle. Current Newport side: Jon Challinor, Adam Chapman, Rob Duffy, Matt Green, Jefferson Louis, Tom Naylor, Aaron O'Connor, Lenny Pidgeley, Mitchell Rose, Glyn Thompson.
