Salford City will travel to Newport County in the Second Round of the Emirates FA Cup.
The draw took place on Monday evening, and paired Salford with The Exiles for a place in the Third Round where The Ammies haven’t been before.
Our fellow League Two side have made a blistering start to the season and lead the way with eight wins from 11 matches. In the First Round they won 1-2 at Leyton Orient, and will be looking to reach the Third Round again where they reached last season, and progressed from in the two seasons before.
We first met Newport in 2019-20, winning 2-1 at Rodney Parade in our league encounter before a penalty shoot-out win in February sent us through to the EFL Trophy Final.
The tie is set to take place between Friday 27th and Monday 30th November.
