Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Newport County have been having their ups and downs in 2020. The Exiles did well to beat Macclesfield Town on Matchday 30, but they suffered back-to-back losses to the likes of Plymouth and Cambridge United in the previous two league fixtures. The Welsh outfit aim to keep their hopes of booking a place in the play-offs alive, but beating Walsall is easier said than done.
You should know that Newport midfielder Josh Sheehan misses the midweek game with injury. The Saddlers, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Forest Green, and they managed to get one. Walsall did well to put an end to their three-match losing run in the League Two, and we predict that they are going to take advantage of the current situation in the Newport Country dressing room. It has to be noted that the two sides played out a goalless draw at Banks’s Stadium in the first half of the season.
