Newport vs Port Vale – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Two of the fourth tier’s promotion contenders meet in Wales when Newport host Port Vale on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Port Vale Double Chance
Newport and Port Vale are among the most prominent contenders in the race to secure a playoff place in League Two this term, though we’re backing the Valiants to avoid defeat against their rivals this weekend. Port Vale have lost just twice in their last nine away assignments, while County have dropped points in three of their last five tests at home. With the hosts looking a little wobbly on their own patch, Port Vale should be able to leave Rodney Parade with something.
Both Teams to Score
Bettors on the hunt for both teams to score opportunities and fixtures this weekend will find plenty of stats around Newport’s clash with Port Vale to build enthusiasm. BTTS has landed in eight of County’s last nine League Two tussles, while a bet in the same market would have returned a winner in eight of Port Vale’s last 11 league fixtures. Expect a similar outcome when the teams face off on Saturday.
Over 2.5 Goals
Newport’s recent skirmishes at Rodney Parade have been a mile-a-minute and each of their last four home games produced over 2.5 goals. The net rattled a whopping 4.25 times per 90 minutes overall across that quartet of high-octane contests and we expect more action when The Exiles pit their wits against a confident-looking Port Vale outfit in Wales.

Newport Team News
Priestley Farquharson and Courtney Senior are expected to be out for Newport this weekend as is injured top-scorer Dom Telford. Skipper Matt Dolan was fit enough to feature and net the winner against Sutton on Tuesday evening and the midfielder should keep his place in The Exiles' midfield on Saturday. County moved up to eighth spot with their late victory over Sutton in midweek.
Port Vale Team News
George Lloyd will sit Saturday's game out, while Port Vale's two top scorers this season – James Wilson and Jamie Proctor – are also sidelined. The Valiants didn't need either player in midweek when they beat Bristol Rovers 2-1, though the Pirates did have two players sent off at The Memorial Stadium.
