Cheltenham vs Newport predictions and top betting tips
Newport County make the journey from South Wales to take on Cheltenham in a match from the EFL Trophy.
Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 Goals
For our first prediction, we here at Football Ground Guide predict that there will be 2.5 goals or less in this fixture between Cheltenham and Newport. Cheltenham currently sits bottom of EFL League One having scored just one goal in twelve league matches this season which came in their most recent fixture, a 1-1 draw at home to Derby County. Newport are also having a poor season but are doing better than Cheltenham, albeit in the league below. Newport find themselves in nineteenth place three points above Doncaster Rovers and level on points with Grimsby Town. A quick look at the recent head-to-head record shows us that six of the previous seven matches have finished with 2.5 goals or less being scored.
Both teams to score prediction: No
For our second prediction, we hear at Football Ground Guide predict that both sides will fail to score. As mentioned above, Cheltenham are having a terrible time in front of goal scoring just twice in all competitions this season and just once in league football with the other goal being an own goal in a 4-1 defeat to Bristol Rovers in Cheltenham's first match in this seasons EFL Trophy. Newport have scored in every game except from one this season, a 3-0 defeat to Accrington Stanley on their opening match of the season.
Correct score prediction: 0-0 Draw
For our third and final prediction, we hear at Football Ground Guide predict that this encounter will finish as a 0-0 draw. Both teams will rest players in this competition to focus on league football and with Cheltenham being in the league above, despite their horrible form, they do have the stronger players but do not have the player offensively. Newport County are more focused on safety from relegation than the EFL Trophy. Expect a very tight game but a draw.
