Newport vs Port Vale Prediction & Match Preview

Newport vs Port Vale
England – League Two
Date: Tuesday, 29th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Newport Stadium (Newport).

The Exiles may be under-performing in their overall ties, but they have been exemplary at their home. If not for their unlucky loss against Forest Green on Boxing Day, the team would have been unbeaten at their home for four months now. They have faced several formidable oppositions during this stretch and came out unscathed. Even a trip by Leicester to the Newport Stadium could not put a frown over the home fans.

Neil Aspin’s men have registered just a single win in their last ten match-days. The team morale is well down owing to the fact that they have been able to score just a single goal in total, the last four times they adorned their boots.

Newport vs Port Vale Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The Ironsides are unbeaten against this opponent.
  • The team from Burslem managed to score just one goal in their last two attempts.
  • Two of the last three games between the teams ended with under 2.5 match goals.
  • At the Newport Stadium, 100% ties have ended with under 2.5 goals.

Newport vs Port Vale Prediction

In their last 21 home-ties, the Port has registered 15 wins and were unbeaten 18 times. They also have a 100% unbeaten record against this rival. On top of that, the Valiants have been winless in four of their last five matches on the road, and in nine of their last ten overall fixtures. Also, they lost three of their last four match-ups. The hosts will easily win at least one of the halves.

The County has kept a clean sheet in five of their last eight appearances in front of the home crowd. Meanwhile, Neil Aspin’s men failed to score in two of their four games away from home. They registered just one goal in their last two attempts against the Exiles, and just two goals in their last four away ties. And most importantly, they have scored a single goal in their last four overall fixtures. I believe the visiting frontline will be completely shut off by the hosts.
