  1. Post update

    Wrexham 0-0 Newport County

    That's it for our coverage and it ends a mammoth day of FA Cup football.

    Fear not though as we will be back for more tomorrow when there is another eight ties, and you can see all the goals from them as they go in on Final Score and via the BBC Sport website.


    Wrexham 0-0 Newport County

    Wrexham piled on the pressure in the final minutes but Newport held on and the National League side will be wondering how they haven't won this.

    Newport will be thankful for an excellent display from goalkeeper Joe Day, who ensures the Exiles will be in the hat for the third round.

    Wrexham 0-0 Newport County

    Another Wrexham chance goes begging.

    It's Joe Day in action again, this time he makes a fantastic sprawling stop on the line after the ball ricochets off a Newport defender.

    Wrexham 0-0 Newport County

    What a clearance!

    Stuart Beavon gets in behind the Newport defence and expertly lobs goalkeeper Joe Day, only for Mickey Demetriou to come out of nowhere and hook it off the line.

  5. Today's action

    No goals at Wrexham then but there were quite a few elsewhere today.

    Non-league sides Halifax and Maidstone were knocked out of the FA Cup on a second-round day devoid of shocks.

    The Shaymen fell to a 3-1 defeat in Saturday's early kick-off against League One strugglers AFC Wimbledon.

    Maidstone, who had beaten League Two Macclesfield in the first round, fell to a 2-0 home defeat by fourth-tier Oldham, Peter Clarke and Chris O'Grady getting the goals.

    Accrington boss John Coleman and assistant Jimmy Bell celebrated their 1,000th game in management with a victory, as their Stanley side overcame League Two Cheltenham.

    Elsewhere, League One's bottom club Bradford completed the comeback of the day to secure a replay against Peterborough.

    Wrexham 0-0 Newport County

    The half-time whistle blows at the Racecourse and neither side has managed to break the deadlock.

    The home team should go in reasonably happy with their performance, whereas Newport can only get better.

  7. CLOSE!

    Wrexham 0-0 Newport County

    An effort on target at last, and it's a decent one.

    Wrexham's recent new acquisition Bobby Grant finds some space in the box and unleashes an effort that Joe Day claws away to safety.

    Fine Save.

  8. Post update

    Wrexham 0-0 Newport County

    It's fair to say this game hasn't been a classic so far.

    Wrexham's Brad Walker has had a couple of pops from distance though - the first went high into the stands - the second was closer to hitting the target but still didn't trouble Joe Day in the Newport goal.

    Sam Ricketts

    Wrexham have told manager Sam Ricketts to stay away from tonight's FA Cup tie against Newport County amid speculation linking him with the vacant Shrewsbury Town role.

    BBC Radio Shropshire are reporting that the former Wales defender is "close" to taking over at the League One club.

    Wrexham assistants Graham Barrow, Jussi Jaaskelainen and Carl Darlington will take charge tonight.

  11. Last time they met

    Wrexham v Newport County (20:00 GMT)

    BBC Sport Wales took former Wrexham and Newport managers Andy Morrell and Justin Edinburgh on a trip down memory lane ahead of today's FA Cup second-round tie.

    Then in the first round, goals from Luke Summerfield and Stuart Beavon helped Wrexham beat National League South side Weston-super-Mare by the same scoreline.
