Newport News and Form – Can Newport beat Grimsby?

Neither Newport and Grimsby have a rich run of form going for them at the moment. The Exiles have earned only one success in their last five games across all competitions (D2 L2). That lone victory was at home in League Two action against Scunthorpe. Their form at Rodney Parade is not bad with a W2 D2 L1 record there in their last five.

Draw/Newport HT/FT


It has only been two home defeats for them all season actually, one coming in the EFL Cup against West Ham and then against Salford in their last league home game. Newport have only managed to score more than one goal in just one of their last six games at home and haven’t earned a clean sheet in any of their last three. In last season’s FA Cup at Rodney Parade, Newport beat Welsh rivals Wrexham, Premier League side Leicester and then Championship side Middlesbrough before bowing out against Man City.

Grimsby News and Form – Can the Mariners win at Rodney Parade?

It was a decent start that Grimsby had to the new season, but come early September their form rapidly dropped away. They are without a victory in any of the last five games now, losing three of those. It has been just two victories that they have taken in their last dozen fixtures across all competitions. They were holding out against Newport in the first go at this FA Cup tie, having gone ahead just before the break.

But they then conceded a penalty 10 minutes from time. The Mariners don’t have the away form in the competition going for them with them having lost all but one of their last five fixtures on the road in the FA Cup. Each of those losses were by a 1-0 scoreline. Grimsby have also lost three of their last four trips to Newport by a 1-0 scoreline as well (0-0). They have also failed to net in five of their last 9 FA Cup away games.

Newport vs Grimsby Predictions

Newport to win: A low scoring home win has a lot of appeal in this FA Cup replay. The trend is in 1-0 score lines and that is well worth a look at to back Newport to get through to the next round with. Grimsby probably won’t have enough to get through this out on the road. Home win.
