It’s a tricky game to call as both sides would sense an opportunity to get a win. The Rovers are currently on a five-game unbeaten run with three draws and two wins. They have lost only once but they have drawn too many games, and hence, they find themselves in the eighth spot. Meanwhile, Newport suffered their second defeat of the season as they lost 0-6 to Yeovil Town last weekend. However, they still occupy the third spot in the table and are just three points from the top. Hence BTTS and a draw look like likely outcomes in Tranmere Rovers vs Newport County betting tips.

Tranmere Rovers vs Newport County Betting Tips: Form Guide

Rovers looking to continue their solid start

Tranmere Rovers are back playing professional football after spending three years in the National League. They have managed to hold their own in the opening weeks, and currently, they look like a good bet to finish in the playoff places. They have lost only once in the league and that result was a 3-2 loss at Swindon Town last month. Since the defeat against Swindon, the Rovers have gone undefeated in five league games with two wins and three draws. Last weekend, they claimed a 0-2 away win at Carlisle. The win over Carlisle was preceded by consecutive 1-1 draws against Northampton and Colchester.

James Norwood has been a key player for manager Micky Mellon so far this season. The 28-year-old has scored the majority of goals for his side this season. Tranmere Rovers have scored ten goals in total in League Two this season, and Norwood has his name against eight of those strikes. Paul Mullin came off the bench to score against Carlisle and we expect him to partner Norwood in the front two against Newport County.

The hosts have some injury concerns too, and the likes of Ritchie Sutton, Liam Ridehalgh and Evan Gumbs are ruled out for this fixture. Now, we take a look at the form guide of the visitors in Tranmere vs Newport match preview.

Newport eager to respond after thrashing against Yeovil

Newport County had started the new season with a 3-0 defeat at Mansfield. However, following that defeat, Newport went on an impressive unbeaten run of five games with four wins and one draw and climbed into the top-three. Newport’s four-game winning run came to an end last week as they lost 6-0 at home to fellow promotion hopefuls Yeovil. Despite the heavy defeat, Newport still find themselves in the third spot with 16 points. However, they are the only side in the top ten with a negative goal difference. The Exiles have scored nine goals and conceded 13 in their eight games this season. 19-year-old Mark Harris has been the top-scorer for the Welsh side with two goals.

Newport come into this game following a heavy home defeat, but they have been quite decent on the road. The visitors are undefeated in their last three games on the road. This run includes wins at Port Vale and Oldham. Hence, Newport are capable of claiming an away win on Saturday, but they would need to improve their performance by several notches. Robbie Willmott received a late red card against Yeovil, and he is suspended for the next game. Manager Michael Flynn has no injury concerns in his side.

Tranmere Rovers vs Newport County Preview: Recent Meetings

Both sides have faced each other only on two occasions before – in the 2014-15 League Two season. Both league meetings that season ended in draws and witnessed a total of two goals. The corresponding fixture was a bore goalless draw. Hence, the limited head-to-head record between two sides also suggests a draw in Tranmere Rover vs Newport County best odds.

Tranmere Rovers vs Newport County Prediction: A stalemate

Tranmere Rovers are back in League Two after winning the playoffs in the National League last season. The Merseyside club have made huge progress in last two years under manager Micky Mellon.

Mellon was able to guide Tranmere to promotion in his first year at the club, and this season, his side look like promotion hopefuls rather than relegation candidates. Only an inferior goal difference separates them from the playoff places. A win against Newport would most definitely see them into the top-seven on the weekend.

The hosts are unbeaten at home this season with two wins and two draws. We expect them to continue their unbeaten home run on Saturday.

After barely surviving relegation in 15-16 and 16-17, Newport showed a lot of progress last season under Mike Flynn as they managed a respectable 11th-place finish. This season, they have made an assuring start and they look strong contenders for direct promotion. Their recent defeat against Yeovil was very uncharacteristic of their season so far, and they would be eager to respond back on Saturday.

Their recent away-form also stands them in good stead for the trip to Tranmere and we expect them to get a draw from the game. If you like our Tranmere vs Newport preview, then don’t forget to check our huge collection of betting tips every week at Betting.org.
