On Friday night, 19th-place Colchester United host ninth in the table Newport County at the JobServe Community Stadium in League Two.
Hayden Mullins men come into this match in decent form having won three of their last five matches, following 2-1 and 3-1 victories over Scunthorpe United and Exeter City either side of a 1-0 defeat to Stevenage in League Two, as well as drawing 0-0 versus Ipswich Town in the EFL Trophy before narrowly losing on penalties, as well as thumping AFC Sudbury 4-0 in the FA Cup First Round as Brendan Sarpong-Wiredu, Freddie Sears, Sylvester Jasper and Shawn McCoulsky all got on the scoresheet.
On the other hand, Newport have won just one of their last five across all competitions, having exited the FA Cup 1-0 away at Morecambe, before losing by the same scoreline in the EFL Trophy to Swindon Town. The Exiles last win came at Victoria Park against Hartlepool thanks to goals by Courtney Baker-Richardson and Dominic Telford. Following the Exiles last victory, they then went on to lose 2-1 at Swindon Town before drawing 1-1 away at Crawley.
Prediction: Colchester United 2-1 Newport County 10/1
