Exiles sent packing to South Wales by DC's Super U's at the JCS 12:49 - Mar 29 with 1983 viewsdurham_exile

Short and sweet this week ahead of a busy Easter programme for the U’s.

I’m still disappointed that we didn’t prevail at Mansfield Town last weekend. Still, we move on and DC will be looking for the same level and intensity of performance today at home to the Exiles.

Graham Coughlan (although I think mainly Joe Dunne) has turned Newport’s fortunes around and they sit in 11th place with 55 points from 39 games. Essentially they are knocking on the door of the play offs. Will Evans picked up from non-league has been their star this season with 22 goals.

I still remember a classic game v Newport at Layer Road in 1977 when we won 5-0 under Bobby Roberts. Bobby Gough and Colin Garwood were stars that day. Despite the scoreline Newport battled until the very end.

Our 22-goal man is plying his trade on loan at the Cowleys old stomping ground. Strangely enough whilst putting some programmes away today I came across the Lincoln v Colchester game from 2019 when we triumphed 3-0 with one of the best performances ever from Sammy Szmodics in his last ever game for the U’s.

This is the start of 9 games in 29 days for the U’s as we look to preserve our league status (again). The reconfigured pitch layout will be used again today and the weather is due to be 13 degrees Celsius at kick off with a 24% chance of precipitation. Cloudy and breezy means conditions will once again be challenging.

Grimsby 38 39 -16
COL U 37 34 -19
Sutton 40 33 -26
FGR 39 33 -27

Another 13 points still looks like the requirement from these 9 games. Three points today is vital in order to put real pressure on Sutton and FGR.

DC has made it clear that the 24 players who have trained this week will be needed in this run of 9 cup finals. Realistically he will be looking at a settled team but key substitutions will be made in games which could turn the balance of the game.

I reckon the following line up today:

Goodman

Mingi Hall Dallison

Fevrier Read McGeehan Smith Anderson

Ihionvien Tovide

Subs:
Hornby Jay Wilkinson Edwards Harbottle Chilvers Iandolo

A bold prediction of 3-0 Colchester. It is about time that we won a game and if our approach is similar to last week then I expect a comfortable U’s victory against a side that will fade away from the play-off scene.

Don’t forget Exiles, iFollow is available today for UK subscribers.

A bumper crowd and a handsome home victory for a memorable Good Friday.

Enjoy the game.

Up the U’s

Just one change to my starting line up!

Akinde plays instead of Tovide.

Great to also see Kells on the bench.

Tovide picked up a knock last week and only trained yesterday.
According to BBC Essex.

Come on we can do this on the beach and threadbare pitch.

Playing because Tovide not 100% fit.

Smith was brilliant then hitting the bar from the edge of the area.

Come on the U's

This is where we must be more decisive.

Akinde given a great chance by Bradley.

Is Goodman the quietest GK ever? He needs to communicate/ shout more

Now got to fight for a point, which if we don’t get, I fear the honeymoon might be over for the Cowleys.

Looks like Big John is getting 90 minutes today.

Iandolo on for Dallison and Tovide on for Ihionvien

Anderson needed to take a leaf out of Micky Cooks handbook.
That cross should have been hard and low.

Come on

30 minutes plus time wasting time to do something about this.

Newport are so poor when compared to the top three and we have still to play two of them
