Swansea and Cardiff begin the new season with tricky opening day away fixtures to Man United and Blackburn Rovers respectively.

Garry Monk begins his first full season as official Head Coach of the Swans by taking on the side he knocked out of the FA Cup last year - although United will be looking for a more positive start under the guidance of Dutch coach Louis Van Gaal.

Cardiff start life back in the Championship against a Blackburn Rovers side who narrowly missed out on the play offs. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping new signings will help the Bluebirds to an immediate return to the top flight.

Newport meanwhile will start their second season in League football with a home tie against Wycombe.
