The teamsheet for Newport v Leicester contained a very NSFW misprint

Newport striker Padraig Amond

Newport striker Padraig Amond has scored in both of the Exiles FA Cup wins this season

Amond is not the only League of Ireland connection in the Newport team as former Dundalk defender Wayne Hatswell is Michael Flynn's second-in-command at Rodney Parade.

A replay looked on the cards but Padraig Amond's penalty in the 85th minute sparked delirious scenes as Claude Puel's men tumbled out.

"Last season they played well with good results at home against Spurs and it will be a tough match because it's hard to play against this team on a small pitch".

There were not many Leicester players who left the pitch with any credit intact from the match, but perhaps the most disappointing was Nigeria worldwide Kelechi Iheanacho. It is a good learning curve for the young players to adapt to the pitch and the tradition.

Given they were beating the 2016 Premier League champions 1-0 at that point, it's hard to imagine anyone cared too much.

"He has been through all the leagues".

Wes Morgan has returned to training and could feature for Leicester City, while Flynn is likely to get his wish with Vardy set to be rested.

Carrying no ill-will for Maddison's attempts at unnerving him, Amond admitted: "I'd be disappointed if one of our players didn't say something like that to them". Vicente Iborra is now in Spain for personal reasons. The Exiles are 13th in League Two and without a win in the league since November.

Andrew Crofts and Joss Labadie remain out of action through injury, but Antoine Semenyo and Matt Dolan could return to the starting line-up today.

This will be the first competitive meeting between Newport County and Leicester since the 1946-47 second-tier campaign, with Leicester winning both matches that term.
