Harrogate to Win
Harrogate have set a rapid pace in the opening weeks of the League Two season and their excellent 3-1 win at Mansfield last time out was their fourth win in five matches in the division. The Sulphurites are playing with a massive amount of confidence at present and they look a solid price to beat a Newport side that have won just once in their last four attempts.
Both Teams to Score
Harrogate have been packing plenty of punch in the final third with 11 goals in five fixtures, though they aren’t quite there defensively yet and both teams have scored in four of their first five League Two assignments as a result. Newport have notched in all but one of their league games since the summer despite some underwhelming overall results, so we’re tipping both teams to score at the EnviroVent Stadium on Friday.
Luke Armstrong to Score Anytime
New Harrogate signing Luke Armstrong – who was plucked from Hartlepool in the summer – has really hit the ground running this season and his effort against Mansfield last weekend was his fourth goal in five appearances for his new employers. The 25-year-old looks razor-sharp at present and he is worth backing in the anytime goalscorer market with that in mind.
Harrogate vs Newport: Match Preview
Harrogate in red hot form
Harrogate have started the new campaign in electric form and their haul of four wins from five games has shot them right to the summit of League Two. Town’s 3-1 victory at a strong Mansfield outfit last weekend was the performance of a team that’s fully on song. Harrogate should have a clean bill of health for Friday’s game.
Newport still not firing
Last season’s beaten Playoff finalists Newport seem to have carried a hangover from their Wembley disappointment into the new campaign, and their seven point bounty from five matches has them languishing in the lower reaches of the division. The Exiles had to come from behind twice last weekend to rescue a point at home to Leyton Orient. Lewys Twamley, Sonny Lewis and Jack Karadogan will return to the squad from international duty this week.
