Newport
West Ham
  • Matthew Dolan recovered from injury in time to start Newport's 1-0 win over Crewe at the weekend.
  • Mickey Demetriou and Adebayo Azeez are expected to miss out again here, while Scot Bennett remains a doubt.
  • Former Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony is training with Newport but isn't signed on for the League Two outfit.
  • Nick Townsend's penalty shoot-out heroics helped Newport set up a glamour tie with West Ham and he will hope to continue in goal on Tuesday.
  • West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini will make wholesale changes from the side that beat Watford 3-1 on Saturday.
  • Summer signing Albian Ajeti is expected to make his West Ham debut in attack, while the likes of Aaron Cresswell, Pablo Zabaleta, Pablo Fornals and Carlos Sanchez should also get a run out.
  • Roberto Jiménez could also make his West Ham bow if Pellegrini decides to rotate goalkeepers for the cup.

Prediction

  • Newport have made an unbeaten start to the season in all competitions and have kept three clean sheets in a row heading into Tuesday's match with West Ham.
  • West Ham won 3-1 away to Watford at the weekend but are yet to keep a clean sheet in three games this season. Manuel Pellegrini's side are clear favourites.

  • Stocking from West ham again, only lower league clubs make us look good and you can't really say that tonight either.. As like Saturday if it wasn't for the poor finishing from the other team we would of lost the last two.
