              Swindon vs Newport Prediction, Tips & Stats

              Newport County travel to face the Robins at the County Ground. Each side have won two of the last four meetings, with the Ironsides winning the most recent meeting 2-1.

              Swindon

              The Robins have picked up a respectable 19 points from 11 games this season, which puts them in ninth place, with a game in hand on all the teams above them. Michael Flynn has created an almost unstoppable attacking side that has scored an average of 2.45 goal per game, the best record in the league. That statistic also increases to 3.4 goals at home, which is rather unbelievable. Swindon hadn’t lost a match until they suffered back to back defeats in the last two matches, but they still remain unbeaten at home.

              Last time out in League Two, Swindon failed to score for the first time this season, as they were beat 1-0 on the road against Bradford. The visitors dominated the possession, but they were let down by poor finishing throughout. The only goal came in the 50th minute but the Robins were unable to bounce back after going behind.

              Newport

              When the Ironsides have played this season, goals have been guaranteed and they’ve been an exciting watch for the neutral. Only one Newport game this season has seen less than three goals, with Graham Coughlan’s side averaging 1.75 goals scored and 2 goals conceded per ninety minutes. All of this action at both ends of the field has made Newport inconsistent, putting them in 19th place. They also struggle on the road, losing 80% of their away matches.

              Newport’s most recent League Two game saw them lose 2-1 at home to Harrogate. The visitors scored either side of half-time, but William Albert Evans pulled a goal back before the hour mark. Despite the Ironsides applying pressure for the remainder of the tie, they were unable to breakdown the Harrogate backline.

              Verdict?

              This tie should see goals and Swindon should have enough firepower to win the game and end their slight blip of poor form. Newport will cause Swindon issues, but the hosts will be too strong.

              The final prediction is Swindon 2-1 Newport.

              Jake Young and Daniel Kemp have been immense so far this season, with the former registering 13 goal contributions and the latter tallying up 12. Flynn will opt for the 3-4-1-2 formation this weekend with Charlie Austin completing the attacking trio and captaining the Robins.

              Aaron Wildig was forced off in the first half of Newport’s midweek 2-0 win over Cheltenham in the EFL Trophy. Albert Evans is the joint highest scorer in League Two, with nine goals, and he should start in attack. Nick Townsend should start in goal.
