Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Rodney Parade will host Saturday’s League Two game between Newport County and Salford City. Newport aim to overtake Carlisle United in top position in the standings, but the game against Salford will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. The Exiles are after their eighth home win of the season, but given their anything but good form, home win should not be considered.
The Lions, on the other hand, picked up vital three points from the midweek clash against Scunthorpe, with the team keeping their automatic promotion hopes alive. Salford City aim to regain their spot in top three, and they should take advantage of the fact that Newport have not been in action since December 26 due to coronavirus issue. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a 1-1 draw at Peninsula Stadium.
