Oldham Athletic vs Newport County Betting Tips: Form Guide

Latics Looking Up

Oldham Athletic boss Frankie Bunn will be very pleased with the way that his team have started the 2018/19 campaign. The Latics have won three out of their last four games, and drawn the other, and have climbed to sixth place in the League Two table. Last weekend, Oldham beat Crawley Town 2-1 at Boundary Park, with the goals coming from Gevaro Nepomuceno and Sam Surridge, who netted a late winner to seal the victory. Unfortunately for Oldham, Nepomuceno will be missing for the clash with Newport, as he is away on international duty with Curacao. Daniel Iversen, the goalkeeper on loan from Leicester City, is also on international duty with Denmark Under-21s.

The Latics did lose in midweek, getting beaten 2-1 at home to Barnsley in the group stages of the Checkatrade Trophy. Bunn is unlikely to be too concerned about that defeat, though, with the League Two campaign surely more of a priority for Oldham this season. The Latics have scored nine league goals so far this season, which is actually one more than their opponents. They also have a better defensive record that County, having conceded four goals as opposed to seven.

County Making Early Pace In League Two

Newport boss Mike Flynn is another manager who will be very pleased with the way that his team have started the season. The Gwent outfit are in second place in the League Two table, having taken 13 points from their six league matches so far in 2018/19. They have won four league matches, drawn four and lost just one. The solitary defeat was against Mansfield Town on the opening day of the season, when County were beaten 3-0 by the Nottinghamshire club. Since then, Flynn’s team have beaten Crewe Alexandra, Notts County, Grimsby Town and Port Vale, and have drawn away at Exeter City.

One thing that will concern Flynn somewhat is that his team have conceded seven league goals this season, scoring eight. That suggests that they might have a weakness in defence that the Latics can target, something that is worth noting, if you are looking for Oldham Athletic vs Newport County betting tips for today.

County will have to do without teenager Antoine Semenyo, who sustained concussion last week, and must sit out the action as a result. Cardiff loanee Mark Harris is also missing, as he is on international duty with Wales Under-21s.

Oldham Athletic vs Newport County Preview: Recent Meetings

These two sides have not met in a league game since 1970. They have played each other in the League Cup once since then, but that was a long time ago too. Back in 1981, the two sides were drawn against each other in the second round of the League Cup. The first leg was held at Boundary Park on October 6 of that year, and it ended in a 1-0 win to Oldham. The Latics won the tie 1-0 on aggregate, thanks to the second leg in Wales ending in a 0-0 draw.

In their entire histories, the two sides have met on only eight occasions. Six out of those eight games were in the old Fourth Division of the Football League. Oldham have won five of those eight games, Newport have won two, and there has been one draw. Some new history will therefore be written this weekend.

Oldham Athletic vs Newport County Prediction: Narrow Home Win

This is a tough game to predict, with both sides in good form over the first month or so of the season. Home advantage could play a part in determining the outcome of the game. Newport have conceded almost as many goals as they have scored so far this season, which suggests there is a slight vulnerability at the back. For that reason, we are predicting that the Latics will come out on top in this game, but it will be close. Predicted scoreline: 1-0 to Oldham.
