Newport v Wrexham Predictions

Newport County battled out a goalless draw at Wrexham with quite the thrills throughout the game and they now host the rivals for the return match of their FA Cup clash, hoping to make the home turf count and make their way to the 3rd Round now.

Exiles haven’t been able to build on it and saw an EFL Trophy loss at Cheltenham Town (on penalties after a 1-1 draw), where an early goal from Padraig Amond proved just short in the end. They’ve been a tougher side at Rodney Parade and earned six wins and two draws in last eight outings here, which should have them very confident now as well.

Wrexham will have regrets after the first leg but this has been nothing strange for them, as they earned three draws and a loss (0-2 to Leyton Orient) in their last four outings. They’ve struggled to convert their chances and failed to find the net on all of the last three occasions, which could be more worrying.

Dragons do have a lengthy unbeaten streak on the road, where they last dropped all three points back in September, and we do expect them very motivated to keep it up. However, they’re in for a rather tough task in Newport and it’s rather questionable if they have what it takes to still turn this one their way.

Newport v Wrexham Betting Tips

We do feel Newport will now be able to turn this one their way and make their way to the next round despite a first-leg match that could have gone any way, which has us going for a Home win at 21/20 with Coral.

However, we don’t feel we’re in for many goals now and with hope we’re in for a narrow contest, we’re now also going for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 13/20 with BetVictor. We’ve seen such clashes in all of the sides’ eight head-to-head clashes so far and this means we’re now hoping for more of the same.
