Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Tranmere Rovers will be looking to build on back-to-back wins over Carlisle United and Leyton Orient when they take on Newport County in the League Two round 33. The Super Whites have been climbing the standings week by week, and a win over Newport could see them regain their spot in top three. Mark Ellis is sidelined with injury for Tranmere, who are eyeing their ninth home win of the process.
The Exiles, on the other hand, have been impressive at the back of late, with the team eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet. Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on the Super Whites as important defender Scott Bennett is banned for the visitors. In the first half of the season Newport defeated Tranmere in Wales thanks to Saikou Janneh’s goal, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
