Newport County Preview – Will the Welsh team get back on track?

Newport County have been challenging at the right end of the League Two table this season, but the Exiles have had a little slump in form at just the wrong time. Since four wins and three draws from seven, James Rowberry’s boys have picked up just one victory from their past six.

Newport have lost four of their previous six and have taken a mere four points from the last 18 on offer. As a consequence, the Welsh side have slipped down to tenth, now three points behind seventh-place Tranmere Rovers.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1752 GMT, Thursday 21 April)

After three straight home losses, Newport will be desperate to get back on track with maximum points in front of their home supporters on Friday night. The hosts are the favourites at 3/4.

Colchester United Preview – Can the U’s claim a sixth win in 11?

Colchester United finished 20th in League Two last term, and the U’s find themselves in 19th right now. They are well clear of the drop zone and will be a fourth-tier club next term. Overall, the Essex team have won 12, drawn 12 and lost 19 of 43.

After two defeats on the bounce, United got back to winning ways in emphatic style last Monday. Goals from Myles Kenlock, Brendan Sarpong-Wiredu and Freddie Sears sealed a 3-0 win over Bradford City at the Colchester Community Stadium.
