Newport vs Oldham
England – League Two
Date: Tuesday, 30th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Newport Stadium (Newport).
For Oldham, the journey is over. As of now, they do have a game in hand, but the maximum number of points they could post on the board is 68. Exeter, the last-placed team in the playoffs list, has already recorded 69 points against their name. After a long and exhausting campaign, the players will definitely not give it their very best this Tuesday on the pitch.
That’s not the case of Newport though. They have a game in hand, and on top of that, they are within range of making it to the playoffs. As a cherry on top, the team is at home this week. Moreover, several of their fellow playoff competitors like Exeter, Colchester, etc have tough fixtures in their final match-day.

Newport vs Oldham Prediction
After all the hard work they put in, Newport finally has a chance to see their dream come true. They have a game in hand, and the team has home advantage. If they manage to win the next two fixtures, they stand a possibility to make it to the playoffs. The upper hand goes to them also due to the fact that Oldham is not properly motivated since they are already mathematically out of contention for the postseason proceedings.
In addition, Newport is unbeaten in their last eight matches, and in 21 of their last 24 home ties. Meanwhile, Oldham lost their last fixture and was winless in 8 of their last 10 away ties. Finally, Newport defeated Oldham in the reverse fixture of this tie, despite being on the road, and kept a clean sheet as well.
Without a doubt, count on the hosts to post the three points on offer this week.
