Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Newport County v Barrow match are shown here - as well as the best betting odds.
Newport County won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 4-1 League Two losing effort in their last game against Crawley Town.
The only scorer from Newport County was Omar Bogle (10'). Nick Tsaroulla (5'), Adam Campbell (54', 67') and Ben Gladwin (79') scored for Crawley Town.
Three or more goals per match were recorded in 5 of the last 6 fixtures where Newport County have participated. Opposition teams scored 12 of them in these games whereas Newport County totted up 12. Regardless, it remains to be seen if the trend might be sustained in this game.
Heading into this contest, Newport County are unbeaten in their previous 4 league matches at home.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Blackpool in EFL Trophy competition, Barrow and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
Sonny Carey (44') and Kylian Kouassi (85') scored for Blackpool.
The stats tell the story, and Barrow have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 6 goals in all. In defence, Barrow seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly.

Our feeling is that Barrow have it within them to put a goal past this Newport County side, but that probably won’t quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
Our selection here is for both teams to score in a 2-1 advantage for Newport County after the 90. We are expecting it to be pretty even.
