Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After suffering elimination to Leicester City in the EFL Cup, Newport County will look to give fans some cheer when they face Stockport County in the League Two round 18. The Exiles have been underperforming in the 2022/2023 League Two season, with the team sitting in 18th place ahead of the visit of Stockport. Wales midfielder Will Evans is likely to return to the starting line-up after he was rested in the EFL Cup defeat.
The visitors, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late, with the team winning three of their last four league matches. The Hatters are six points behind the playoffs berth, but beating Newport on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. There are no fresh injury worries in the away side.
