I would make as many changes as possible in order to give our first team regulars a rest after three games in the space of a week recently and I hope that Jose Mourinho is thinking along the same lines.

[A]fter a 25-year absence, Newport County returned to the Football League in May with an extraordinary play-off final win over Wrexham.
