Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in six of Newport’s last eight home games
  • Crawley have seen both teams net in eight successive matches on the road
  • Town are on a run of three successive defeats away from home

Newport struggling for momentum

If anything, Newport are spluttering into a play-off place at the moment, moving back into the top seven last weekend as they beat Swindon 1-0 for a first victory in four.

James Rowberry’s side have had a problem keeping clean sheets, managing just four in their last 14 outings, of which only one has come at Rodney Parade.

Indeed, both teams have scored in six of their last eight at Rodney Parade, since beating Harrogate 4-0 in January, and in six of their last 11 at all venues.

Crawley playing for pride

The play-offs are beyond Crawley, and they are already all but mathematically safe from relegation, so there is little left riding on their remaining five games.

Perhaps that explains why John Yems’ side have struggled for consistency of late, losing three in a row on the road and not keeping a clean sheet on their travels since beating Northampton in January.

They have however scored in 16 successive away matches, with both teams scoring in the last eight, while also netting in 13 of their last 15 at all venues.

I predict both teams will score in this one, but Newport should sneak the victory, so I select 2-1 to the hosts as a correct score prediction.
