Rodney Parade will host Tuesday’s League Two game between Newport County and Exeter City, the two promotion-chasing sides. The Exiles aim to regain their spot in top three, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Grecians. Newport County failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Southend United, and, to make things even worse for Michael Flynn’s troops, midfielder Matthew Dolan suffered an injury.
Exeter City have been in a fine form of late, with the team beating both Stevenage and Bradford City in the previous two league fixtures. The Exiles aim to regain their spot in top three, and they should take advantage of Newport County’s current form. The attacking partnership of Jay – Bowman has been in a perfect working order of late, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered.
Salford City will be looking to build on a 4-1 win over Cambridge United when they take on Barrow in the League Two. The Lions continue to impress at home ground, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to secure promotion to the League One. Ian Henderson has been impressive in front of goal of late, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
Barrow suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Bradford City and Cambridge United in the previous two league fixtures. The newcomers are not regarded as good travellers, and I do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Salford City’s party at Peninsula Stadium. In the first half of the season Salford City defeated Barrow thanks to Ashley Hunter’s goal, which is yet another reason why I am tempted to put our money on the hosts.
Tuesday’s football game at EnviroVent Stadium pits together Harrogate and Carlisle United, the two teams who were beaten by Forest Green and Cheltenham Town in their last league fixtures. Harrogate are stuck in the middle of the standings, with the team having slim chances of securing promotion to the League One. The team’s main goal is to secure the League Two survival, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the postponed fixture.
The Cumbrians, on the other hand, aim to regain their spot in top seven. Carlisle United have not been in action since February 2, meaning that tired legs are unlikely to prove to be a big problem for them. Anyhow, the Cumbrians want this win more than the newcomers, and I predict that they are going to emerge triumphant.
