Tip Reasoning

  • Four of Newport’s last five matches have included three or more goals
  • There have been three or more goals in six of Harrogate’s last nine away games
  • Newport’s home league games are averaging three goals per 90 minutes

No fans at Rodney Parade

Newport are hindered at the moment by rules from the Welsh government that prevent fans from attending matches, but that does not excuse their patchy home record this season.

The Exiles have won five of their eleven outings at Rodney Parade, losing three and drawing three, which is surprising given how many goals they have been scoring.

Their total of 20 strikes is bettered by only two sides in League Two, with recent results including a 5-0 battering of Stevenage, as well as 3-2 and 2-1 wins over Sutton and Port Vale respectively.

In total, eight of their last ten home fixtures have included three or more goals and that trend could well be repeated in this game.

Harrogate strong on the road

Harrogate have one of the best away records in League Two, but they have plenty of questions to answer over the strength of their defence.

Simon Weaver’s side have kept only one clean sheet in their last ten matches on the road, with half of those games including three or more goals.

They have only lost once in their last three League Two games on their travels, but only six teams in the division have conceded more than their 31 goals in 22 outings.

I suspect this will be a high scoring affair, so predict there will be three or more goals in the match, but with no home crowd to battle against, Harrogate could nick this one, so I select 2-1 to the visitors as a correct score.
