Footymad preview History of the Bath City v Newport County fixture

Newport County face a trip to Bath City at Twerton Park on Tuesday evening, looking to break their duck against the hosts. The Exiles have crashed to defeat in more than half of the matches.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in February 2011, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a (Conference) Premier match.
