Tranmere to Win
Fresh from back-to-back draws on the road against Port Vale and Swindon, Tranmere return to Prenton Park this weekend where we expect Rovers to harness home advantage against Newport. Rovers have lost just three of their last 16 League Two tussles on their own patch and having started their campaign with an opening day victory over Walsall there, we’re tipping them to make it six points from six at Newport’s expense.
Under 2.5 Goals
Any margin of victory on Saturday for Tranmere is likely to be slim however and we’re tipping under 2.5 goals to be scored with that in mind. That bet landed in 100% of Rovers’ first three League Two matches of the season while under 2.5 goals were also notched in two of Newport’s last three assignments. In addition, one or fewer goals were registered in each of the last five encounters between the clubs and we expect another cagey affair this weekend.
Half Time Result: Draw
Tranmere’s early result this season have been solid, though it’s interesting to note that all three of Rovers’ League Two fixtures this season were level at the half-time interval. Visitors Newport are almost certain to play it safe in the early exchanges of Saturday’s clash at Prenton Park and the draw stands out as an excellent choice in the half time result market again.
Tranmere vs Newport: Match Preview
Tranmere were held to a second 0-0 draw on the spin in midweek when they shared the spoils at Swindon, though one point might have been three had Town keeper Jojo Wollacot not been in such inspired form. The result did at least allow Rovers to hold on to their unbeaten start and they are one of eight League Two teams yet to taste defeat this term.
Newport were beaten finalists in last season’s League Two Playoffs and The Exiles will hope to upset the odds to make another promotion push this term. Manager Michael Flynn had a busy summer in the transfer market and with so many new faces in their ranks, it could take Newport some time before they start to gel.
