              Accrington vs. Newport Prediction, Tips & Stats

              Accrington Stanley are kicking off life back in League Two with game against Newport County on Saturday afternoon.

              Accrington ended a five-year stay in League One last season as they were relegated from England's third tier with a 23rd place finish.

              It was a long, tough campaign for an Accrington side many people believe had been punching above their weight for a number of years with relegation finally catching the Lancashire club.

              It's been a pretty bleak summer transfer-wise too, with Stanley losing as many as seventeen players in the transfer window - including the likes of Ethan Hamilton, Mo Sangare, Harvey Rodgers and Mitch Clarke - with just one player, right-back Kelvin Mellor, coming in on a permanent basis.

              Josh Andrews (Birmingham City), Brad Hills (Norwich City) and Lewis Shipley (Norwich City) have all been brought in on loan but the squad is still looking fairly thin in terms of quality.

              Manager John Coleman will continue in the dugout despite overseeing last season's relegation. Given his successful history at the club he still has plenty of credit in the bank.

              As of now Stanley are realistically looking at a mid-table finish considering the transfer budgets that several clubs in this division are now able to operate under and they simply haven't strengthened enough to expect more.

              The league is full of quality and Accrington are likely here to just make up the numbers.

              Newport County finished 15th in League Two last season in what was a drab, forgettable campaign.

              They're hoping to fare better this time around and they come into this season having strengthened significantly over the summer, with Ryan Delaney, Kyle Jameson, Shane McLoughlin, Jonny Maxted and Bryn Morris having all joined on permanent basis while Matty Bondswell (Newcastle) and Adam Lewis (Liverpool) have both arrived on loan.

              Newport haven't had any departures from the club so it's expected they'll be a much more enjoyable outfit to watch this time around, but manager Graham Coughlan has to help integrate the new signings into the club to be able to reap any rewards.

              The expectation is roughly mid-table for Newport here but there are always one or two surprise teams that defy predictions and reach the play-offs so fans should approach this season in full optimism - as most tend to do.

              They've been given a perfectly winnable game in their season opener against a side they are on a similar level to so if they can begin their campaign with three points that will set them off nicely.

              For our Accrington vs. Burton prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.

              Accrington Team News

              Joe Pritchard is nursing a serious achilles injury and will be unavailable for Accrington for a large portion of this season in what is a huge blow.

              Loanees Brad Hills and Lewis Shipley are both likely to be named in the starting XI alongside summer signing Kelvin Mellor as the three prepare to pull on the red shirt for the first time in a competitive game.

              Newport Team News

              Graham Coughlan has the luxury of being able to name a number of new faces in his starting XI after a busy summer, and Ryan Delaney and Shane McLoughlin are two names that look set to be trusted with a place in the lineup at Accrington.

              Jaden Bogle needs a big season goalscoring-wise for Newport and he'll be looking to get off to a flyer in this one as he looks set to lead the line for Coughlan's side.
