Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Newport County and Port Vale go head to head at Rodney Parade in what is expected to be a close encounter. The Exiles aim to retain top position in the League Two standings, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their sixth consecutive win at home ground. Newport are eager to keep their 100% record on home soils intact, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match.
The Valiants suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Tranmere and Scunthorpe in the previous two league fixtures. Port Vale are low on confidence ahead of the trip to South Wales, and given Newport’s impressive home record, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Exiles. In their last encounter at Rodney Parade Newport defeated Port Vale thanks to Jamille Matt’s goal. Midfielder Luke Joyce is banned for the visitors.
