Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After eliminating Milton Keynes Dons in the EFL Trophy, Newport County recorded a very important win over Scunthorpe United in the League Two. The Exiles did well to put an end to their ten-game winless run in the League Two, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to book their place in the play-offs. Anyhow, Newport County face a difficult task in Saturday’s football game against Swindon Town, who are seen as No. 1 favourites to secure automatic promotion to the League One.
The league leaders picked up all three points from the League Two derby against Crewe Alexandra, with the team moving one step closer to returning to the English third tier. Swindon Town are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Newport County, and given the home team’s current form, both teams to score bet should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Ade Azeez):
Adebayo Azeez is a professional football player who was born in Orpington, England on January 8, 1994. Azeez started his youth career at Rivercray, and in 2008 he moved to Charlton Athletic. Despite signing a professional contract with the Red Robins, the pacey attacker did not see any game action with the capital club.
After spending a couple of seasons on loan Wycombe Wanderers, Leyton Orient, Torquey United, and Dag & Red, Adebayo Azeez signed a contract with AFC Wimbledon in the summer of 2014. Azeez played for the likes of Partick Thistle, Cambridge United, and Dover Athletic (loan) as well before joining Newport County on January 31, 2019, on a permanent deal.
The Newport County forward has 3 caps with the England U19 team. His main position is centre-forward, but he is capable of producing fine showings as both, right and left winger. Adebayo Azeez has dual citizenship (England/Nigeria).
Highlighted Team (Swindon):
Founded by Reverend William Pitt of Liddington in 1879, Swindon Town are an English football club which compete in the League Two. The Robins welcome their rivals at County Ground, the stadium which can hold up to 15,728 spectators (all-seated), with the team wearing red shirts and white shorts when playing at home.
Gray is the dominant colour of the club which turned professional in 1894. Oxford United are considered the team’s main rivals, but the Robins have rivalries with Bristol City, Bristol Rovers, and Reading as well. In 1969 Swindon Town did remarkably well to win the English League Cup, with the team beating Arsenal 3-1 in the title game at Wembley Stadium.
John Trollope is the club’s player with most appearances as he played 889 first-team games from 1960 to 1980. Premier League attacker Charlie Austin is one of the most notable footballers who played for Swindon Town in the past.
