Manchester City will get a big wake up call when they see Newport County‘s pitch for their FA Cup tie this evening.
Pep Guardiola’s men are at the lowest ranked team left in the competition later this evening.
And they’ll be in for a tough game based on the surface.
Newport County play at Rodney Parade and have actually welcomed Leicester and Middlesbrough in the FA Cup so far this season.
It’s wins over those teams that have led to Newport being in this weekend’s fifth round.
And even though City are one of the best teams in the world, the pitch may be a leveller for some of their star players.
As shared by BT Sport presenter Jake Humphrey, it’s a really poor pitch at Rodney Parade – something fans won’t be used to:
Newport and City kick off at 5.30pm and the game will be televised by BT Sport.
