Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Harrogate will look to retain top position in the standings when they take on Newport County in the League Two round 7. The league leaders made a flying start to the season, with Simon Weaver doing a great job with the EnviroVent Stadium outfit. Harrogate impressed in a 3-1 win over Mansfield at the weekend, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play. The attacking partnership of Armstrong and Muldoon has been in a perfect working order of late, and the duo should continue to lead the line for the hosts.
The Exiles, on the other hand, have been struggling at the back in recent weekend, and seeing that they conceded five goals in total in the previous two league fixtures, home win should be considered. Dominic Telford is pushing for a start after the 24-year-old midfielder scored the equalizer in a 2-2 draw with Leyton.
