On Saturday, Willen Road opens it's turnstile for perhaps the Swan's biggest game so far this season. Sleaford, our visitors, will no doubt also be looking at the game as crucial as the two go into battle for the all-important three points.
The Swans and Sleaford are experiencing similar seasons with both teams looking to steer away from the danger-zone and climb the ladder.
Sleaford are currently 13th in the UCL table on 18 points having won 5, drawn 3 and lost 12. They will be buoyed by a recent 3-1 victory away at Long Buckby.
Newport currently occupy 15th in the UCL Premier Division table just three points adrift of Sleaford. With 15 points from 21 games, the Swans continue to rebuild. A bruising 0-0 encounter with Boston last week showed the spirit of the team when they managed to earn the point after playing most of the game with just ten men in controversial circumstances.
This is the 2nd meeting with Sleaford this season. A November league clash at Elsaforde Park saw the Swans go down 4-2 that day. A result they will look to reverse in this return game.
So, the stage is set. Newport vs Sleaford has all the required ingredients to be a classic encounter. So come along and cheer on the Swans at the Green and Majestic Surroundings of Willen Road.
Come on you Swans!
