Scunthorpe vs Newport – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Newport can climb to as high as third spot with the right set of results this weekend. Can the Exiles grab the points they need at Scunthorpe? Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Newport to Win
Newport stiffened their playoff push with an excellent 4-0 victory over Harrogate on Saturday and the confident Exiles can keep the good results coming against Scunthorpe. Second from bottom Iron were beaten in each of their last three assignments and they were swatted aside 3-0 when the last faced County in October.
Over 1.5 Newport Team Goals
Newport showcased the attacking talent in their ranks with their four-goal display against Harrogate last time out and having already put three goals past Scunthorpe once this term, the Exiles will back themselves to cut loose again on Saturday. Only leaders Forest Green have scored more often than County in League Two and the visitors look a solid bet in the over 1.5 team goal stakes.
Dom Telford to Score Anytime
Dom Telford just cannot stop scoring and the on-fire 25-year-old helped himself to two more goals in Newport’s demolition job on Harrogate. Telford has now notched 18 times in just 17 League Two appearances this season and we’re backing the red-hot attacker to get in on the act again on Saturday.
Scunthorpe vs Newport Match Preview: Playoff chasing County favourites to prevail
After a brief, unspectacular lift in form through November and December, Scunthorpe’s performances have slipped to relegation standard again since the turn of the year and the Iron were beaten in each of their three League Two matches since January 1st. Keith Hill’s side are just two points from safety at the wrong end of the table, though they have played two games more than Colchester just above them.
Newport emerged from their three-game winless slump to hammer Harrogate 4-0 last week in what was a welcome return to form for The Exiles. Recently installed manager James Rowberry has enjoyed just a 42.86% win percentage since taking the reins in October, though the inexperienced 36-year-old will hope his team’s convincing triumph over the Sulphurites can reignite their campaign.
