          Tranmere vs Newport Prediction, Tips & Stats

          Two clubs that have picked up form in recent weeks go head to head this weekend, as Tranmere host Newport. The Ironsides have won the last four meetings, and they will hope to continue this excellent streak.

          Tranmere

          Nigel Adkins has done a remarkable job since taking over as Tranmere boss, and he has instilled belief within each individual. This run has taken the Rovers out of the bottom two, into 22nd place. They’ve netted just 27 times this campaign in 20 matches, whilst also suffering an average per game of 1.65.

          However, the Rovers are unbeaten in their last four matches, with two impressive results, beating Gillingham 3-1 and most recently, drawing 2-2 with Mansfield. In the latter, Tranmere took the lead twice but they eventually succumbed to the continuous Mansfield pressure.

          Newport

          Much like the hosts, Newport have been in excellent form as of late, with a 2-1 home win over league leaders, Stockport County, being the highlight. After 20 matches, the Ironsides have picked up 25 points, which places them in 15th. Newport are relatively dangerous in attack, scoring 30 goals thus far, but they do concede an average per game of 1.8, the joint third highest.

          Most recently in League Two, Newport defeated Morecambe 2-1. The hosts took the lead just after ten minutes but by the hour mark, the visitors had completed the comeback.

          Verdict?

          Tranmere perform much better at home than they do on the road, winning five of their ten matches. Yet, Newport are poor whilst travelling, losing 70% of their away games.

          The final prediction is Tranmere 1-1 Newport.

          Tranmere Team News

          Jordan Turnbull was sent off last time out so he is unavailable. The majority of the side that frustrated Mansfield will keep their place in a 4-4-2.

          Newport Team News

          There are no new injuries for Graham Coughlan to deal with, which allows the boss to select his preferred side. The 3-4-1-2 will be selected, with Omar Bogle and William Albert Evans in attack.
