Newport to Win
Promotion hopefuls Newport have been blowing hot and cold in the early exchanges of the 2021/22 campaign, though they can climb into the top half of the League Two table with a win this weekend and we’re tipping The Exiles to grab the victory they need. Second from bottom Scunthorpe have lost three of their last four matches and with their confidence low, they should struggle against their higher-class hosts in Wales.
Over 1.5 Newport Team Goals
Newport battered Scunthorpe 4-0 when the clubs last met at Rodney Parade back in April and County will fancy their chances of hitting the net multiple times again when the teams renew acquaintances on Saturday. County notched twice in three of their last four home assignments and they look a strong price in the over 1.5 goals stakes again against a Scunthorpe outfit that hold the joint-worst defensive record in the division.
Both Teams to Score
Clean sheets have been in short supply for Newport this season however, and their habit of leaving the door unlocked at the back could allow The Iron to net a consolation. County have shut out their opponents just once in their last eight attempts in league and cup, though they have enough bite at the business end to punish Scunthorpe’s own leaky rearguard. With that considered, back both teams to score this weekend.

Newport Team News
Scott Bennett and Courtney Senior look set to stay in the treatment room for Newport this weekend, while first-choice stopper Joe Day is also considered a doubt. The Exiles lost at Barrow last weekend despite taking an early lead and they will need to improve on a record that shows just one win in six League Two skirmishes if they are to advance towards the playoff positions.
Scunthorpe Team News
Harry Bunn, Alex Kenyon and Tom Billson are all out injured this weekend while Lewis Thompson, captain Harry Davis and Ryan Loft are all considered doubts for The Iron. Scunthorpe limped to a 1-0 defeat against Port Vale last time out and they have won just once in nine League Two fixtures since the start of the campaign overall.
