Mansfield to win the game
Mansfield were able to produce a strong performance to beat Bristol Rovers in the opening match. Even though the team ended up slipping to a heavy loss against Preston a few days later, the challenge offered by Newport County is expected to be less. Newport County made several defensive mistakes against Oldham but they came away thanks to a late goal and the opposition not being clinical. Mansfield are unlikely to let them off the hook.
Total goals over 2.5
The opening game for Mansfield produced over 2.5 goals with ease. Newport County could also have been involved in a high-scoring match on opening day had it not been for some disappointing finishes from both sets of forwards. The major contribution of goals in this match could come from Mansfield, who have the potential to easily score a couple of goals.
Both teams to score at least once
Newport were completely dominated by Ipswich in the recent League Cup but they still managed to come up with the goal. The offensive performances from Mansfield were quite good in the opening game and they are likely to build on this performance. The goals against Bristol mean that Mansfield has scored at least once in the last four home matches.
Mansfield vs Newport – Match Preview and Team News
Mansfield do have a good home record and the team could have picked up a victory from the opening two rounds of the league two action if they follow up with a good performance this weekend. Mansfield have lost only once in the last 10 games at home. Manager Nigel Clough does not have any injury problems.
Michael Flynn will be delighted to have begun the new season with back-to-back wins in two different competitions. However, a third consecutive away match will test the team to its ultimate strength. The team began the campaign as favourites for the play-offs and they have now cemented the position with the two performances. Flynn does not have any injury problems ahead of the game.
