Newport have not been beaten in the league by Exeter City in their previous 3 matches. They are also winless against the Grecians in their last 5 matches in the league.
Exeter are left without a victory over the County in games played away from home for the previous 4 league games. They however remain undefeated in their previous 2 away league fixtures.
We feel that an away win or draw is the best option since their last 6 h2hs has been that way. Also, Exeter remain undefeated in 78% of the games played on road this season.
