West Brom continue to look the more likely to break the deadlock. A cross is swung deep into the box but Matt Phillips can’t get enough of his head to it to steer it goalwards.
Not lots happening so far at Rodney Parade, Newport had a penalty appeal which was waved away by the referee.
What a ball to find Emiliano Marcondes wide left. The Brentford forward gets into a crossing position but his low ball is too close to a Baggies defender, who clears.
Brentford looking threatening. Two shots in as many minutes fall firstly to Rico Henry and secondly Sergi Canos. The former fires well over, the latter well wide.
League Two Newport have an early attack as Josh Sheehan breaks forward but he overhits his pass and Tristan Abrahams can’t reach it.
Brentford play some lovely stuff but they can mix it too. They launch a long throw into the box that is met by Charlie Goode but not with anywhere near the requisite power to threaten David Button.
And we are under way at West Brom and Newport.
Right then, almost time for some actual football. We’ve got players out and ready to go at West Brom and Newport…

Hull saw off Leeds in the last round, winning on penalties at Elland Road following a 1-1 draw.
The Tigers haven’t had a particularly good time of it of late, dropping into League One after a second-half-of-the-season collapse following the sale of Jarrod Bowen to tonight’s opponent in January.
They have, though, won two out of two in the league this season, suggesting they may just be righting the ship.
City’s dangerman is forward Malik Wilks, who scored their goal at Leeds and the winner in their win over Crewe at the weekend.
Tyrone:It doesn’t look like Spurs have space for a rescheduled match. Looks likely Tottenham will get bye to the next round
