Matt Taylor has given his thoughts as the Grecians travel to South Wales to take on fellow promotion chasers Exeter City this Saturday.
Taylor's men head across the border in search of a fifth win in seven matches, but face a Newport side just five points behind them in the Sky Bet League Two table.
"We know that if we play our very best it will be a good game of football and hopefully a good outcome," Matt said ahead of the clash.
"I've watched Newport recently and it's hard to take too much detail out of it. But there's a lot of personnel on the pitch that we are familiar with.
"They have a centre-forward who is bang on form and the sign of a good team is their goal return.
"Full credit to Newport for the investment in their pitch - it's a really good surface now."
