Our prediction for this League 2 match:
All eyes will be on Peninsula Stadium when Salford City and Newport County face each other in the League Two round 18. The Exiles continue their chase for promotion to the League One, with the team leading the standings despite the loss at Leyton Orient. Newport County are eager to retain top position in the standings, but they will have a big fish to fry in Tuesday’s clash against Salford, who are tough to beat at home.
Newport boss Michael Flynn is likely to make changes to the starting XI that faced Leyton at the weekend. The Lions, on the other hand, are eager to climb to the League Two playoffs berth. Salford City are undefeated at home ground in the 2020/21 season, and seeing that the Exiles were anything but impressive at the back in the defeat to Ross Embleton’s troops, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
