Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in seven of Newport’s last eight games.
  • Sutton have conceded in five of their seven games so far this season against sides in the top 10.
  • Newport have scored in eight of their 10 home fixtures.

Home fans used to seeing goals

This venue has seen plenty of goals this season and indeed Newport’s games as a whole have averaged more (2.8) than any other team in the division. They have scored 30 times and conceded 23 and will be out to avenge a 2-1 defeat to Swindon last time they played at home. Newport have drawn back-to-back matches, 1-1, away at Crawley and Colchester and are just two points outside the play-offs in ninth place.

They have hit a lull of late and are winless in three after winning three straight games to catapult them into contention for the top-seven. They have taken just one point fewer than Sutton however through the last five games and it’s hard to split these sides. Newport have scored close to two goals per home game whilst conceding one on average hence our 1-1 correct score prediction.

Visitors enjoying life at this level

It’s been quite the run so far for National League champions Sutton United who are flying high in League Two in sixth place. Their mood will have been dampened by an FA Cup exit on Saturday but they have won back-to-back league matches as well as winning three of their last four. Their last away league game came on the 20th of November which saw them lose 4-1 at Leyton Orient but prior to that defeat they had won consecutive fixtures on the road.

They have lost at each of the top three this season already but have won away at Tranmere who are hot on Newport’s tails in 10th place. Sutton have scored 12 times in 10 away games this season whilst conceding 13 so I’m predicting both teams to score here.
