Football – England – League Two Betting Tips

Onto League Two, and my next selection concerns high-flying Newport County playing host to strugglers, Morecambe as the betting tips continue at Rodney Parade.

Newport have actually slipped a little in recent weeks as they’ve been involved in a few stalemates which have cost them ground on the top three clubs, Lincoln City, MK Dons and Exeter City respectively.

The Welsh club have drawn three of their last seven overall with stalemates against Macclesfield Town, Forest Green Rovers and Bury, but with just one defeat from these last seven matches suggests that Newport are still worth backing here.

The Exiles possess a pretty solid looking home record of  5-1-1 14/14 and although they suffered a 6-0 loss at home to Yeovil Town which was a bolt from the blue, Newport have since recovered by beating Cambridge United 4-2 and Stevenage 2-1 at Rodney Parade.

Onto Morecambe, and just when you thought Jim Bentley’s side had started to turn the corner in terms of improved results, The Shrimpers seem to have reverted to type in recent times as they’ve lost three of their last four matches overall.

Morecambe had previously recorded back-to-back wins over Macclesfield Town and Grimsby Town as well as a point away at Cheltenham Town, but defeats to Tranmere Rovers, Colchester United and Mansfield Town (all at their Globe Arena), have plunged them back into the relegation mix.

The visitors have actually performed better away from home so far this season as their record of  2-1-4  8/15 shows and they make their way down to Wales on the back of a three-match unbeaten sequence.

However, this is likely to be one of their biggest tests yet, and my betting tips suggest giving the quarter-ball on Newport here.
