Crewe vs Newport Prediction & Match Preview

Crewe vs Newport
England – League Two
Date: Saturday, 12th January 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Alexandra Stadium (Crewe).

The league standings of these two teams do not paint the clear picture as far as recent form is concerned. Crewe is in a state of improvement while Newport is going down the stairs. The observation becomes more apparent when the home form of the Railwaymen and the away form of the Exiles are taken into account.

The former has won four of their last five home-ties and on the road, the latter is in a four-game losing streak, six-game winless streak, and has just one win to their name in the last 11 attempts.

Though the Ironsides are just seven points away from the play-off zone, their recent form makes it kind of an unattainable objective, at least for now.

Crewe vs Newport Prediction

Games between these teams have always been low goal-scoring affairs. To quote a stat, the maximum goals in any h2h match has been three goals, and no team has scored more than two goals.

The excellent recent form of the Alex, especially their home form, tips the scale in their favor. They won four of their last five fixtures at home and kept clean sheets in two these wins. On the other hand, the Port has just one win to their name in the last 11 trips on the road. The run stretches back to September of last year. There’s little chance that the County would score more than one goal.

Every single win in h2h ties has been for one goal, keeping true to the trend of few numbers of goals in their face-to-face games.

Considering the above observations I would go for a win for David Artell’s men with a margin of one goal.
