League Two leaders Newport will be looking to make it four straight wins as they step back into action on Tuesday night.

They will be playing host to Colchester. However, this may not be the best time for the Exiles to be welcoming them to Rodney Parade.

That’s because the recent form of Colchester has taken a turn for the better, winning their last two.

Newport Preview – Can Newport take all three points at home?

The Exiles are in great shape this season, currently leading the way in League Two.

It has been an excellent W6 D1 L1 record from them in this campaign, currently sitting on a three match winning streak.

The only game that they have let slip was a narrow loss at Cambridge, who are currently sitting in second place behind them.

So it has been six wins in their last seven league games and that of course puts them in good stead for this fixture.

In the match outright, Newport are 11/10 to win* (odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October).

That may offer punters some value with which to back them, even though the Exiles are taking on a team who have just come into form.

Looking specifically at the home form Newport this season, they have won all three played at Rodney Parade.

Home and away they have not conceded in any of their last three games.

But while they are running as the favourites for this match, we have to look a little closer at their overall form this season.

Our betting prediction:
1-1 Correct Score

(odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October)


All six of their league successes for this season have been against teams who are currently 15th or lower in the table.

So it could be argued that they have not faced the toughest of tests so far. This, in contrast, should be a big test for them.

If the Exiles were to pick up a win, it’s hard to see it happening by more than a one goal margin.

For League Two betting, a Newport 1-goal winning margin option is currently at 11/4 odds* (odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October).

The two clubs didn’t get to meet last season at Rodney Parade, but Newport lost 3-1 at Colchester in October last year.


Colchester Preview – Can Colcehster continue their good record against the Exiles?

Colchester have won four of their last five games played against Newport in the league.

From all of their previous League Two fixtures, Colchester are W4 D2 L1 against the Exiles, so that’s worth paying attention.

It’s a strong record. But in their three trips to south Wales in the division, Colchester have left with a W1 D1 L1 record.

Colchester are currently sitting in ninth place in the league and are searching for their first away win.

It has been a decent season from Colehcster in terms of not getting beaten.

They have taken a W3 D4 L1 record for the season, the one loss happening by just a one goal margin against Carlisle in the middle of October.

That was in the only away game that they faced against a current top-eight side away from home in the campaign.

It has been back to back successes that they have scored, both home wins, against Forest Green and Harrogate.

Both of those are sitting about 9th-placed Colchester in the league at the moment.

Colchester, therefore, have a good bit of current form worth noting. Can they translate in their first away win however?

They are the 5/2 underdogs on Tuesday to pull that off* (odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October).

The U’s have only taken the one away clean sheet for the campaign, but they have been leading at the halftime break in two of their four road games.

Away from home this season, Colchester have scored three-quarters of their goals in the first period of fixtures.


Newport vs Colchester Betting Advice

This is a really interesting-looking game and we think that Colchester are good enough to go and hold their own and pick up a point.

They have proven all season to be a very difficult side to beat and therefore that has to count for something.

The draw is a 12/5 option in the match outright* (odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October).

We are also taking into account the quick turnaround in games for both sides after the weekend.


Key Facts – Newport vs Colchester Betting Tip

  • Newport have lost only one game in League 2 this season
  • Newport have not conceded in any of their last three fixtures
  • Colchester have drawn four of their last five league games


Newport are going well, but they really haven’t faced anyone of note yet at Rodney Parade this season.

So this could be a bit of a wake-up call for them after having played teams who aren’t in the kind of form that Colchester are.

The double chance option of a Colchester-Draw at 4/6 has to be on the mind* (odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October).
