Newport vs MK Dons
England – League Two
Date: Tuesday, 12th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Newport Stadium (Newport).
A high-octane thrill-ride is on the cards for League Two fans as two crowd-pullers go at each other’s throats this week. Also, in case of these teams, the league standings provide kind of an inaccurate picture.
The reason being, contrary to the hierarchy in their positions, the Exiles are on fire right now, while the Dons are trying everything they can to revive their old spirit back, especially on the road. Paul Tisdale’s men began their season on a high note, but as time progressed, the team failed to keep up momentum.
In the last five months, the Ironsides have lost just a single game at home, and that was against the best team on the road, in the competition, Forest Green.

Newport vs MK Dons Prediction
The Port was unbeaten in 15 of their last 16 home-ties and found the back of the net in 19 of their last 23 attempts at the Newport Stadium. In the meantime, Paul Tisdale’s men amassed 27 games in which they breached defenses, out of just 30 attempts. Also, seven of their last nine matches had over 2.5 goals.
Furthermore, the team from Milton Keynes took part in seven away ties where the number of goals was three or more, out of eight tries. Also, they managed to find the back of the net in 13 of their last 15 road trips.
And finally, and most importantly, 100% of their h2h ties ended with over 2.5 goals, where both sides took responsibility in contributing.
Expect a fierce and competitive game, with both sides on the scorecard, resulting in at least three goals.
Mike Flynn’s men recorded 15 unbeaten home-ties, from 16 games, and their counterparts are winless in their last seven away games, where six were losses. They also conceded in all these matches, conceded two or more in six, and three or more in four of these six.
Incorporating these stats with the home advantage for the Exiles, I anticipate a victory for them.
