Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams to score has landed in each of Newport County’s last five matches.
  • Both teams have scored in five of Port Vale’s last seven games.
  • Port Vale have scored and conceded in each of their last seven away fixtures.

Promotion chasing Vale head to Newport

Having gone three games without a win, Port Vale are back up to third place and in the final automatic promotion place after back-to-back victories over Hartlepool and at Bristol Rovers in the week. They also defeated Burton Albion in the FA Cup last weekend so have won twice this week already. They have taken seven points from their last five league games while Newport have accumulated eight in the same time, hence our 1-1 draw prediction with the sides so evenly matched.

Newport meanwhile, got the better of fellow play-off hopefuls Sutton United in the week and helped their case for a place in the top-seven as they moved up to eighth and now just outside the play-offs on goal difference. They have now lost just one of their last five games and just one of their last four at home in all competitions. In fact, in League Two they have been beaten in just one of their last seven matches as hosts.

Goals expected at Rodney Parade

Only Forest Green and Swindon have taken more points on the road than Port Vale this season and they have scored 18 goals in 10 games away from home. However, Newport have only lost two of their 10 home matches so far and have conceded on average just over one goal per game as hosts. It’s hard to pick a winner between these two and I can see them sharing the spoils in a 1-1 draw.
