Manager Brian Flynn: "We played Austria in Parndorf at the end of last season in a friendly and had a very good work-out. We lost the game by a single goal, but it gave me the chance to start looking at potential new players for the future. This continues now with the return friendly. I need to replace the likes of Shaun MacDonald, Mark Bradley, Hal Robson-Kanu etc who are now too old for the squad, but I am happy that we have some good youngsters ready to step-up. Some were with me last week in our Under 19 mini-tournament qualifiers in South Wales, so I know plenty about them. I hope that the Newport fans will turn-out in strength to support the match at their local club, as well as other from across South Wales and the rest of the country too. These lads are the future and deserve our support".
