Rochdale vs Newport – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Newport can climb into the automatic promotion places with the right set of results this weekend. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.


Both Rochdale and Newport are proving tough to beat at home and on the road respectively, and the similarly stubborn outfits could be difficult to separate at the Crown Oil Arena as a result. The Dale have shared the spoils with their visitors in each of their last three home assignments, while County have drawn four of their last seven away tests. With those records providing compelling evidence, a draw looks the pick of the match result markets again this weekend.

Both Teams to Score

Rochdale and Newport aren’t the most reliable performers in the clean sheets arena, indeed, the teams have kept just nine between them in 42 League Two fixtures combined since the summer. The sides have been better moving in the other direction, in fact, both teams have notched in each of Rochdale’s last four games and in 100% of Newport’s last seven away tussles. Consequently, we recommend a stake on BTTS when the clubs face off in Greater Manchester.

Dominic Telford to Score Anytime

Newport star Dominic Telford has emerged as a shock contender in the race for League Two’s Golden Boot this term. The 25-year-old has never been a reliable goal-getter in his career, yet his has struck an incredible 14 goals in just 13 league starts so far this term. Telford has notched in each of The Exiles’ last four away matches and bettors are advised to consider backing him in the anytime goalscorer market again on Saturday.

Sam Graham and Jimmy Keohane are still sidelined for Rochdale, though midfielder Alex Newby was fit to start against Bristol Rovers at the weekend. The Dale were beaten 4-2 by The Pirates, who found the net twice inside the last six minutes to prevail. That defeat moved Rochdale down into 18th position, though they can return to midtable with a win this weekend.

Newport Team News

Priestly Farquharson and Courtney Senior are both still out for Newport, though key performer Dom Telford played and scored against Port Vale last time out despite being a doubt before the game. The Exiles moved up to fourth spot following their win against the Valiants and they can make another vertical jump with a follow up victory this weekend.
