The Newport gaffer is realistic ahead of today’s clash:
“I’ll be straight with you, they’re not going to like it. They’ll be thinking: ‘Let’s get the result and get out of here.’
That’s exactly what will be going through their minds. I can’t blame them – it’s an older stadium, the showers won’t be as good as theirs, the pitch has improved a lot but that won’t be as good as what they’re used to, and there definitely won’t be any of those comfy seats in the dugout. Not unless some fans nick some and put them in there before the game.”
Vorm, Trippier, Foyth, Vertonghen, Walker-Peters, Dier, Wanyama, Sissoko, Dembele, Llorente, Kane (C).
Meanwhile Poch is more concerned with speculation that one of the greatest teams on planet Earth is interested in hiring a bloke who’s won nothing as manager.
The way I work is like thinking I’m going to stay forever in the same club. It’s the best way to commit to your job. But I am realistic and today you look in England from the beginning of the season and today in six months, seven months, there’s many changes on the Premier League benches.
“Then it’s not only you. It’s about the results, the ideas, it’s the chairman, he can change and say ‘come on, out’.”
