Footymad preview History of the Hereford United v Newport County fixture

Newport County travel to take on Hereford United at Edgar Street on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Exiles will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them being consigned to defeat by opponents in 3 of the 5 games.

The last time the two teams met at Hereford United was amazingly over twenty years ago, in December 1987, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-2 thriller, in a Fourth Division match.
