Newport Double Chance
A much-changed Newport team were roasted by Southampton in the Carabao Cup on Thursday, though their league form has been stronger with two victories from their first three matches – both of which were on the road. Salford meanwhile are winless after five competitive assignments this term and their struggle for success makes Newport an excellent option in the double chance market on Saturday.
Under 2.5 Goals
Newport have been leaning on their sturdy defensive foundations so far this term and two of The Exiles’ three league fixtures so far have produced under 2.5 goals as result. Salford’s games have been similarly low on action, with under 2.5 goals landing in three of their four League Two tussles since the summer. With both clubs grinding through the gears a little in the final third, the under 2.5 goals market jumps out at a price worth backing again.
Under 1.5 Salford Goals
Two of Newport’s victories on the road this season were accompanied by clean sheets and County’s ability to make life tough for their hosts could frustrate Salford on Saturday. City have played three times at the Peninsula Stadium this term, scoring just a solitary goal and with their touch in front of goal looking rather blunt, backing them to net under 1.5 times could be worth your while.
Salford vs Newport: Match Preview
Salford are aiming to improve on last season’s 8th place finish this time around, though their manager Gary Bowyer – who is a relatively recent appointment following his arrival in March – is struggling to get his charges up to speed. City just can’t seem to deliver the goods in the final third and they failed to notch again in their last test against Swindon Town (0-1).
Last season’s beaten Playoff finalists, Newport look like they are ready to launch another push for promotion this term and while County haven’t fully blow off the summer cobwebs yet, they have been putting points on the board. Their incredible 8-0 Carabao Cup reverse at home to Southampton on Wednesday was a show-stopping result, though The Exiles fielded a severely weakened team against the Saints.
