- Reaction score
Pompey have collected 10 points from a possible 12 ahead of their clash with Newport County.
Our opponents, though, are yet to taste victory in any competition thus far this season, however they picked up their first point in a 1-1 draw with Burton last Saturday.
The two sides met 3 times last season, with Newport triumphing twice: in the JPT and at Fratton Park, whilst Pompey came out on top in the reverse fixture.
Agyemang & Wynter are available for selection after returning to training.
But Jack Whatmough (ankle) and Michael Poke (achilles) are both major doubts.
Tom Craddock (knee), Danny East (groin), Wes Fogden (knee), and Bradley Tarbuck (ankle), are all still out of action.
Newport could hand a debut to Joe day, who has just joined on loan from Peterborough.
But the Welsh side are without Danny Crow (leg), and Rene Howe (thigh), while Aaron O'Connor (leg) and Chris Zebroski (groin) are both doubts.
Head to head
Pompey 11 wins,
Newport 10 wins,
At Fratton Park
Pompey 7 wins,
Newport 4 wins,
