Newport vs Colchester Predictions


Newport’s promotion campaign has fallen apart after a poor run of recent form. Colchester rarely win away and the out of form sides can cancel each other out.

  • Newport are winless in 5 of their last 6 matches (League Two)
  • Newport are winless in 8 of their last 11 matches against Colchester (all competitions)
  • Colchester are winless in 4 of their last 6 away matches (League Two)

Head-to-Head


Colchester have a 25-16 advantage against Newport in 56 meetings with 15 draws. 

Newport Form


Newport suffered back-to-back defeats for the first time since February in their last two. A 2-1 home loss against Crawley came before a 1-0 loss at Sutton. 

The Exiles couldn’t make their 13 shots and 57% possession count at Sutton. They conceded a penalty before half time and couldn’t respond.

James Rowberry’s side are winless in five of their last six and they have lost their last three at home. Poor form has seen the Exiles fall from paly-off contenders to tenth in League Two. 

Newport Injuries & Team News


Defender Priestley Farquharson is ruled out. 

Colchester Form


Colchester bounced back from consecutive 2-0 defeats against Stevenage and Exeter to beat Bradford (3-0) on Monday. Myles Kenlock and Brendan Sarpong-Wiredu scored in the first half before Freddie Sears added a third late on. 

The U’s are unbeaten in seven of their last 11 in League Two. Improvement under interim boss Wayne Brown has seen Colchester move up to 19th and 11 points off the relegation places.

Colchester Injuries & Team News


Defender Ryan Clampin and goalkeeper Dean Gerken are unavailable.
