Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After failing to win the previous three league matches, Walsall will look to get back on course in the League Two when they face Newport County on Saturday. The Saddlers produced a fine display in a 1-1 draw with Gillingham at the weekend and, as a result, they are seen as favourites to beat the Exiles in front of home fans. Barring any fresh injury worries, Mathew John Sadler is unlikely to make changes to the team that shared the spoils with the Gills.
The visitors, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win. Newport County are eager to stay in the playoffs race, but beating Walsall on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that punters from all around the world can can benefit from betting on a draw. Defender Scott Bennett should miss out with injury for the visiting side.
