Boss after cup banker.

John Cornforth takes charge of Newport County for the third time tomorrow, knowing the outcome could decide how much he is able to do at the club.

The Exiles head to North Leigh in the third qualifying round of the FA Cup with Cornforth eyeing a windfall to boost his rebuilding plans.

'I'm enjoying it and although it's early days, I now need to start improving the squad,' said Cornforth.

'While I don't think Newport County can make the FA Cup final, there is a lot of money to be had in the meantime.

'The last round brought pounds 4,000 and if we are successful tomorrow, that will bring a further pounds 5,000, so a club like ours can't afford to take it lightly.

'I have a player budget to adhere too and before I start planning for players to come into the club, I obviously need players to move on to other clubs.'
