          Newport vs MK Dons Prediction, Tips & Stats

          Newport County are back at Rodney Parade to welcome MK Dons to South Wales as the away side aims to move deeper into the top half of the table after a two-game winning run in League Two.

          It's been a tough return to action down in the fourth tier for the Dons, but after winning their past two games in the league, they are heading into the top half and are currently sitting in 12th. Last time out, they edged past the high-flying top scorers Swindon Town, as Warren O'Hara and Max Dean got a goal each before an own goal won it for them.

          MK Dons also beat Bradford City with ease before this, as Dean got another goal alongside finishes in the first half from Jack Payne and Joe Tomlinson. Alex Gilbey added a fourth in what was easily the Dons' best display of the season after having 11 shots on target from 18 efforts.

          However, despite the better form in the league, they were beaten by Reading 3-2 in the last outing and are our of the FA Cup at the first round stage. Gilbey and Dean got back amongst the goals that day, but MK Dons never led the game and struggled at times against the League One side.

          As for Newport, they got back to winning ways after a loss at home to West Ham United U21s, as the club defeated Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup first round thanks to a goal in either half from Shane McLoughlin.

          Back in the league, it's been yet another struggle for County. They have lost eight times already, let in the most goals for those outside of the relegation zone (32), and now head into this match with only five victories from 16 outings. They have, however, scored an impressive 26, which is the most for those in the bottom half.

          Newport team news

          Shane McLoughlin's goal in either half no doubt keeps him in the side, and he will play alongside Drysdale, Bennett, Delaney and Bondswell. Lewis Payne could potentially come back into the side as well, while Kiban Rai is back with the team as well, alongside James Waite. Will Evans and Wildig should remain in midfield with Morris. Omar Bogle was booked in the last outing and should feature here once more as the sole striker. Fraser Needham and Oliver Thomas are out injured for this one. There are no suspensions to worry about for Newport.

          MK Dons team news

          Mohamed Eisa should start this game after coming off in the last outing, and Jonathan Leko and MJ Williams are expected alongside him. Tucker, Devoy and Gilbery should all start here too with Norman in the midfield. Smith, Harvie and O'Hora are all likely to play in defence in this game. Jack Payne has also returned and could get some more minutes, while Craig MacGillvray should return to the goalposts instead of Kelly. Dean Lewington is also out injured for MK Dons.
