Walsall will welcome Newport County to Banks's Stadium for a matchday 25 fixture in England EFL League Two. The last meeting on 18th September 2021 ended in a Newport County 2-1 win. Both sides have met six times in the most recent seasons. Walsall has won 0 matches, and Newport County triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 1.50 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.

Walsall's last game in the England EFL League Two against Colchester United at home ended in a 3-0 win. Although The Saddlers played less with the ball than their opponent, it was enough to get the result they were hoping for. Walsall was dangerous in both halves and scored in the 22nd, 32nd and 66th minute.

Newport County's previous game in the competition versus Rochdale ended in an away 3-0 loss. Ironsides didn't turn up and failed to create clear cut chances for most of the game.

Since the start of the season, Walsall is more dominant at home. They have four wins out of 13 games on home soil. Although Walsall is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 23% home clean sheets.

Newport County has picked up 10 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Newport County wins 1.43 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Newport County kept a clean sheet in just 21% of their visits.

It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Newport County.
