Tom expecting tough tie

9 January 2016

Midfielder Tom Lawrence is hoping for a positive reaction against Newport County in the Emirates FA Cup third round this Saturday.

Rovers make their second trip to South Wales in seven days to battle it out for a place in the fourth round against the League Two outfit.

Newport, managed by John Sheridan, are without a win in four games, whilst Rovers are without a win in three, but despite this Lawrence says he and his team-mates are in a buoyant mood ahead of the cup clash.

"I think these games can be more difficult than league games," he said.

"You don't really know what to expect, it is going to be a tough game and hopefully we can do a job on them.

"Training has been positive, but it always is. The lads knuckle down and we have a good group that want to do well.

"We were going to have a slump but we didn't expect three defeats and we have to return to winning ways.

"Every game we play we look at winning, I think we can beat any team in the Championship and January is a month where we can do that."

No tickets are available on the day at Rodney Parade, those supporters who are making the journey to Rodney Parade there will be a dedicated away supporters bar facility with Sky Sports News on TV screens within the away section of the ground from 1.30pm.

Tea, coffee and hot food is also available from an outlet within the away end.

There is a designated drop off point for visiting supporters coaches on Corporation Road and the post code to follow is NP19 0BH.

Visiting supporter car parking is available at Fitness4Less on Corporation Road, adjacent to the away end entrance. There are also several public car parks in the City Centre within a short walking distance of Rodney Parade.
