Newport County vs MK Dons - LIVE

A look at Rodney Parade

Back in 2018, we arrived here and MK Dons needed flippers and armbands more than boots and shin pads.

Much nicer today!

With Dons in 12th and Newport in 20th, it's poised to be an important game for both sides.

Mike Williamson reverted to a more familiar looking side for the League Two encounter with Newport County this afternoon, after the FA Cup defeat to Reading last week.

It means four changes to the side from seven days ago, seeing Craig MacGillivray, Joe Tomlinson, Jack Payne and Max Dean return to the action, while Jonathan Leko keeps his place in the side.

MK Dons: MacGillivray, O'Hora, Williams, Harvie, Tomlinson, Norman, Payne, Grant, Gilbey, Leko, Dean

Subs: Kelly, Lewington, Eisa, Smith, Burns, Devoy, Dennis

Newport's team to face MK Dons

The home side line-up like this:

The folks at Grosvenor Sport have sent over the odds for today's game:

Newport 2/1

MK Dons 23/20

Could be a bit of a shake-up in defence?

MK Dons get the game underway

6 mins: Nothing much to say yet

A busy game but so far, nothing really much doing in this game. Both sides struggling to make anything stick but Dons win a corner on the far side

8 mins: Corner comes to nothing

Payne's set-piece is easily gathered by keeper Nick Townsend.

9 mins: Gilbey should score

Great break from Dons, Tomlinson bursts over halfway, Gilbey points to where he wants it, the wing-back puts it on a plate for him but the skipper can't put it goal-wards.

He should put MK Dons ahead
