Tip Reasoning

  • Stevenage are winless across their last seven league games.
  • Newport are unbeaten in five games, three of which against top-seven opposition.
  • Only Scunthorpe (59) conceded more league goals than Stevenage’s 54 this season.

Sorry Stevenage could be headed for the drop

Just three points outside of the bottom-two ahead of the round, Stevenage need to start winning games sooner rather than later if they are to avoid the dreaded drop.

However, they currently endure a seven-game winless run of league games, which doesn’t bode well as they welcome promotion-chasing opponents Newport, who are enjoying a five-game unbeaten run.

Compounding matters for the hosts is their woeful recent H2H history, they are winless across the last four meetings (D2, L2) and have not even managed to score a goal in 348 minutes of H2H play, suggesting they may well struggle yet again.

Play-off ambitions live on for Newport

Newport have shown their mettle in recent weeks, holding the league leaders to a draw while dispatching fellow promotion chasers Tranmere.

Newport have lost their last two away league games without scoring, though we can perhaps make an excuse for those games as they were against both of the sides occupying first and second spot ahead of the weekend.

Considering the gulf in league positions, recent form and the quality of opponents in recent games, I predict that an away win looks like terrific value in this game at above evens. However, it could be tighter than the league table suggests, with a squeaky 1-0 scoreline for the correct score selection.
