Exeter City vs Newport County – League Two.
St James’ Park, Exeter – 20 February, 13:00.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
League Two will be continuing this weekend with Week 33 matches, and it will be opened with game between Exeter City and Newport County on Saturday afternoon. Due to very inconsistent results of both teams, it is really hard to predict full time winner in my opinion. Bookmakers were way too generous with 12/5 odds on Newport to win, so there is a lot of potential for value betting. When it comes to hosts and their chances, they are currently backed up with 6/5 odds. When it comes to current placement on League Two table, both teams are in relatively safe zone at the moment, while Exeter may even join the race for one of playoff spots with few consecutive victories. First match between these opponents was played in October and it ended as 1 – 1 draw.
Exeter City are currently going through mini crisis. They have lost last two matches in domestic league to Wycombe Wanderers 1 – 0, and 2 – 0 last weekend to York City, which left them with smaller chances to reach 7th position, currently occupied by Mansfied Town with 48 points. Their head manager P.Tisdale is known of being great motivator and energy injector, so it is not rare case to see his teams having such inconsistent results like Exeter City.
Newport County fans were probably a bit scared for their League Two status few weeks ago, but two recent victories against Morecambe and Carlisle United increased the gap between them and relegation zone teams to 6 points. That match against Morecambe on Globe Arena is definitely worth mentioning because Newport had full control of that game, creating at least 7 goal opportunities. S.Boden scored two goals, but that number could have been way higher if he was more focused.
