Italian draw specialists set for another stalemate

Premier Sports 8pm

Serie A’s draw experts meet in Florence where the hosts need to pick themselves up after suffering Coppa Italia heartache at the hands of Atalanta on Thursday.

Key stats
  • Newport are unbeaten in 12 matches.
Expert verdict

Tranmere will know all too well about County’s disciplined defensive, having failed to score in both league meetings with them and, even with James Norwood leading the line, they look vulnerable.
