Newport vs Forest Green Predictions


Newport enter the playoffs in excellent home form and they should gain a first-leg advantage over Forest Green, who struggled for form late in the season. 

I am backing a Newport win to nil. 

  • Newport have won to nil in their last 3 home matches (League Two) 
  • Newport have kept 5 clean sheets in their last 6 home matches (League Two)
  • Forest Green have failed to score in 3 of their last 5 matches (League Two)

Head-to-Head


Forest Green have a 3-2 advantage against Newport in eight meetings with three draws.

Newport Form 


Newport ended the League Two season in solid form. A 1-1 away draw at Southend on the final day extended County's unbeaten league run to five matches. 

Mickey Demetriou equalised in the second half following Southend’s early opener. Goalkeeper Tom King then saved a penalty on 60 minutes to preserve Newport’s unbeaten finish to the season.

Newport’s defensive solidity in the latter stages of the season helped them to reach the League Two play-offs. The Exiles won five of their last nine, conceded just three goals, and finished in 5th place.

Newport have won their last three matches at home without conceding. A 2-0 win against promotion chasers Crawley was followed by a 4-0 victory against Scunthorpe and a 1-0 win against League Two champions Cheltenham. 

Newport Injuries & Team News


Midfielder and captain Joss Labadie should be in contention following a gashed knee against Southend.

Forest Green Form


Forest Green finished their League Two campaign with back-to-back wins for the first time since February.

A 2-1 home win against Tranmere came before a final day 3-0 away win at Oldham, their first away win in six matches. 

Forest Green saw just 37% possession but an Aaron Collins brace and Odin Bailey’s 65th-minute strike capped a dominant second-half display. 

Rovers poor run of four wins from their last 14 matches saw them fall from the automatic promotion places in the final third of the season. 

Mark Cooper's side were in the top three between September and March but eventually finished 6th, with a two-point buffer to make the League Two play-offs. 

Forest Green Injuries & Team News


Striker Jamille Matt and midfielder Elliott Whitehouse are ruled out through injury.

Verdict

Newport have rarely conceded at Rodney Parade and they have picked up good results at home.

Forest Green have been unconvincing away, so I am tipping a Newport win to nil.
