Leeds have already beaten Newport 5-1 in the EFL Cup this season and should again prove too strong when they meet in the FA Cup on Sunday.
The League Two underdogs will have home advantage this time, so there is every chance of a more competitive contest.
A Look At Newport County’s Betting Odds
Newport have already beaten Walsall 2-1 and Cambridge 2-0 in this competition at Rodney Parade, while their home form in League Two is also solid.
County edged out Exeter 2-1 here on Monday and have only lost twice in 12 games at this venue in that division.
Experienced Irish striker Padraig Amond has scored goals wherever he has played and now has nine for Newport since joining from Hartlepool in August following two in two games.
A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds
Trying to secure promotion to the Premier League is obviously the priority for Leeds this season and they are still just in the play-off places, despite a couple of disappointing results.
United slipped up when losing 1-0 at Birmingham and then couldn’t break down Nottingham Forest in a goalless stalemate at Elland Road.
Thomas Christiansen commented after Monday’s draw: “We didn’t deserve to get anything at Birmingham, but here we did almost everything to get the victory. It seemed like there was a wall inside their goal at times.”
Kemar Roofe went closest to breaking the deadlock when hitting the crossbar and he will have fond memories of facing Newport, having hit a hat-trick in August’s encounter.
Leeds were involved in some entertaining contests during that EFL Cup run, also beating Port Vale 4-1 and knocking out Burnley on penalties after a 2-2 draw, before eventually losing 3-1 at Leicester.
