Both Bristol Rovers and Newport County have managed one win from their last five league outings. Interestingly, they have drawn their last two domestic outings, a fate we are anticipating for this fixture. It will not be as straightforward as uttering from the mouth as they have not played a stalemate amongst them in four competitive meetings.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
From 2013 to 2016, Bristol Rovers played Newport County once every year. Only one of these four meetings concluded with an Under 2.5 total goals tally. The most recent three meetings have gone in excess of the 2.5 goal mark and that should be the case in this league engagement. Newport's last three matches have seen this fate, while two of Bristol's last three fixtures have finished in this manner.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
In their most recent three meetings, both Bristol Rovers and Newport have scored against each other. The Rovers have scored in each of their last five recent fixtures, while the Exiles have hit the back of the net in four matches in the same period. Given their respective goalscoring efficiency, expect them to hit the back of the net aplomb.
Bristol Rovers vs Newport: Team News and Match Preview
A second-half lead would have been enough to give Bristol Rovers the win against Colchester but their defence let up for the second match in succession. They had to be content with a second successive draw, extending their unbeaten run to three matches but adding further distance between themselves and the promotion positions.
The Exiles are two points ahead of their hosts and three points away from the play-off zone. However, with three draws in succession, the atmosphere in Newport County will be dull as they dropped six points in succession from winning positions. While their attackers have done their job, the constant letdowns by the backline need to be addressed by James Rowberry if he is to address the slump.
