Leyton Orient Double Chance
Leyton Orient beat Newport home and away in League Two last season and we’re tipping The O’s to enjoy another productive afternoon against County on Saturday. Orient recorded a fine 2-0 win over promotion favourites Bradford in their last outing, while Newport were shot down 3-0 in disappointing style at Salford. With the teams’ confidence levels sliding in opposite directions, Leyton Orient are available at a price worth backing in the double chance market.
Under 2.5 Goals
Just a single goal separated Newport and Leyton Orient when the teams last met in March and we’re anticipating another game of fine margins this weekend. Four of Orient’s five League Two assignments this season produced under 2.5 goals, while The Exiles have scored just three times in four games in the division so far. We expect the defences to take centre stage again in Wales and we’re tipping under 2.5 goals to hit the net as a result.
Highest Scoring Half: Second
Newport and Leyton Orient have become familiar foes in recent seasons and the pattern of their games could open up a chance for bettors in the highest-scoring half market. Seven of the last ten goals notched in encounters between the clubs were registered after the half time interval and we’re tipping the second half to see more action than the first again on Saturday.
Newport vs Leyton Orient: Match Preview
Last season’s beaten Playoff finalists Newport have won two and lost two of their first four matches in League Two this term, though it’s worth noting that 100% of their fixtures so far have been contested on the road. They have played two cup games at Rodney Parade, though their results there have varied wildly. Southampton beat them 8-0 in the Carabao Cup, though Newport won 2-0 against Plymouth in Wales in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday.
Eight points from five matches is a promising early haul for Leyton Orient under new manager Kenny Jackett and the O’s could move to within a point of top spot if results go their way this weekend. Orient have already produced two show-stopping displays against Exeter (4-1) and Bradford (2-0) highlighting just how dangerous an opponent they can be for the division’s strongest teams.
