Newport Double Chance
Newport look like they are starting to get their act together and their 2-1 win over Walsall last time out put them within swinging distance of the playoff positions in League Two. County have now tasted defeat just once in their last five games in all competitions and they should be able to maintain their momentum by taking points from a Barrow outfit that have won only once at home in four attempts since the summer.
Both Teams to Score
Both teams to score bettors have found plenty of success in fixtures involving Barrow of late, indeed, BTTS has landed in four of The Bluebirds’ last five assignments in league and cup. Newport meanwhile, have traded blows with their opponents in three of their last four games and we expected goals to be notched at either end again at The Dunes Hotel Stadium on Friday.
Over 1.5 Newport Team Goals
Newport have had their shooting boots firmly on in recent weeks and The Exiles have scored two goals in four of their last five contests. County could find more joy in the final third on Friday when they take on a Barrow side that shipped three goals in their last home tests against Colchester, and Michael Flynn’s side look a decent prospect at big odds in the over 1.5 team goals market as a result.
