Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
A place in the Carabao Cup last 16 will be at stake when Newport and Watford go head to head at Rodney Parade. The Exiles aim to build on the League Two victory over Barrow, but Watford will pose a much big threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. Newport are eyeing their third consecutive win at home in all competitions, but beating the Championship side is easier said than done.
The Hornets kicked off their EFL Cup campaign with a win over Oxford United, and seeing that they managed to keep a clean sheet in each of their first two league games of the season, it is no wonder Vladimir Ivic’s men are seen as favourites to win Tuesday’s clash. The Serbian tactician is a born winner, and we are positive that the Championship outfit will take the EFL Cup clash very seriously.
