Tip Reasoning

  • Seven of Newport’s last eight away games have had more goals in the second half
  • 20 of the last 29 goals Leyton Orient have scored have come after the break
  • County have only lost one of their last eight away matches

Orient looking for momentum

It has been an irritating little period for Leyton Orient, who are playing just their second home league game in five weeks due to their FA Cup run and postponements caused by coronavirus.

Their on-off fixture list has perhaps led to rustiness at the start of games, but over a long period they are clearly a more dangerous team in the second half, netting over 66% of their goals in the second half of their last 20 matches.

The Os drew 0-0 with Port Vale on Saturday, but that was a first defeat in their last ten league outings at Brisbane Road, with six of those matches having more goals in the second half.

Newport finding form again?

Newport have won their last two League Two games, a 1-0 victory at Scunthorpe and 4-0 thrashing of Harrogate, while they are strong on the road, losing only four of their 14 matches on their travels.

The Exiles are another team who are somewhat more potent after the break. 14 of their last 18 goals over an 11 game period have come following the interval, with eight of those matches having more goals in the second half.

Given both teams respective form, this one looks like it should be a really close game, but I predict more goals will be scored in the second half than the first, selecting a 1-1 draw as a correct score prediction.
