Blues' first game of 2021 takes them on the road to Newport County, and you can watch LIVE on iFollow with a £10 match pass.

The League Two standings show a game of top against bottom, but the form guide illustrates a different story ahead of the game.

Blues are fifth in the form table after three wins, two draws and one defeat throughout December.

Newport on the other hand are 14th, without a win in their last four. The Exiles' midweek game against Exeter City was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Purchase a match pass for the first fixture of 2021 to see if Blues can bounce back and begin the year with three points!

Match Commentary

Once again match commentary on the iFollow stream will be provided by the home club and not the usual BBC Essex commentary team.

As was the case on Tuesday against Leyton Orient, this decision comes due to BBC Essex being unable to attend the game under new BBC Covid Safety rules for Tier 4 areas.

To avoid a 40 second delay on BBC Essex's commentary to the match footage, Newport County's commentary will be the only commentary available for Blues supporters watching on iFollow to provide a better viewing experience, rather than no commentary or delayed commentary.
