Newport lost 2-0 at AFC Wimbledon last Saturday, before a 1-1 draw against Tranmere Rovers at Rodney Parade on Tuesday.

The Welsh side are still in sixth, and in the League Two play-off places, but Wycombe are three spots above them going into the game at Adams Park.

Wrexham have not won in the league since Boxing Day - and face another tough task against Conference leaders Barnet at the Racecourse this afternoon.

Monk 'frustrated' at Swansea draw

Swansea City manager Garry Monk admits he was frustrated that his side didn't pick up all three points against Sunderland.

The Swans went a goal down to the visitors to the Liberty Stadium thanks to a first half Jermain Defoe strike.

But despite Ki Sung-yueng's equaliser after the break, Monk thought his side deserved more than a point.

We got a good equaliser from Ki and we tried to push to get the second but it just wasn't meant to be today and sometimes that happens. We had enough chances to score at least two or three goals today but it didn't want to go in the back of the net unfortunately.
