Notts County vs Newport
England – League Two
Date: Tuesday, 19th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Meadow Lane (Nottingham).
Notts County has launched a brave campaign to get themselves out of the relegation zone that they have got stuck in. Believe it if you can, the team defeated two podium contenders in the last two match-days, Forest Green and Mansfield.
After their heroics, the team looks forward to hosting the Ironsides. It might be a match made in heaven, considering the never-ending problems Newport has been facing on the road.
The team really had potential to fight for the playoff spots, but their away form has totally let them down. It’s no wonder the lion’s share of their points came from home games.

Notts County vs Newport Prediction
The momentum surely lies with the hosts. Their last two match-days returned two wins against high-profile teams. This Tuesday, they also have the home advantage going in their favor. In addition, without contest, Newport has been the worst team on the road in the last several weeks. They are currently going through a nine-game winless run and has just one win to their name in the last 14 road trips. The current winless run also witnessed six losses from the last seven attempts.
There’s little chance that the hosts will lose this tie.
Encounters between these sides have always been high goal-scoring ones. Especially at this venue, this stat has been particularly prominent. Five of their last seven meetings and all of those at the Meadow Lane had three or more goals. Considering that it’s a crucial period in the season, and the desperation of either team to win, a bet on over 2.5 goals is an easy decision to make.
