Newport County vs Forest Green Rovers: Top Free Betting Tips

In this EFL Trophy fixture, Newport County welcomes Forest Green Rovers at the Rodney Parade. Both sides suffered embarrassing defeats at home in their last domestic outings and will look at the cup competition to get back to winning ways.

Forest Green Rovers to Win

Newport County have suffered three successive wins and look unlikely to put up a stand against Forest Green. The Rovers are not in good form themselves but will arrive at Rodney Parade with the knowledge that they have only lost once on the road this season. Moreover, they are plying their trade a division above the Exiles and will have the confidence to get past them.

Under 2.5 Goals

Goal scoring has been a problem for both Newport County and Forest Green. The hosts have not scored in their last three league outings and will be under scrutiny against a team one division their senior. Rovers are in a similar quandary and have only scored four goals in as many matches. Four of their last five meetings have also concluded with less than three goals on the night.

Both Teams to Score: No

The last two interactions between these sides saw goals at both ends of the pitch. However, three of their last five competitive fixtures have not seen this statistic being realized. With Newport failing to score in their last three outings and the Rovers averaging just one goals per match, we do not see both teams getting on the scoreboard.

Newport County vs Forest Green Rovers: Team News and Match Preview

Newport County

James Rowberry was helpless on the sidelines as Newport suffered their third successive defeat. While their defence has been exploited by their rivals with ease, the failure to respond has been shocking. It will not be an easy task as their downward trajectory is rooted in various deficiencies. They stand hauntingly close to the relegation slots and need to address their issues if they are to avoid being embroiled in a survival battle.

Forest Green Rovers

Win over Morecambe allowed Forest Green Rovers to exchange places with their rivals. They still stand in League One's relegation slots and have been found wanting across the pitch. They need to move away from the foot of the points table with their defence letting them down at each time of asking. They have the second-worst defensive output at the moment, which is weighing heavily on their improvement chances.
