Newport County – Crewe Match Prediction | 22-08-2019

Unfortunately for Crewe, theyre up against a Newport side that is very good at remaining competitive on the road, even if they havent had too much to shout about from a results point of view in recent times. However, none of those five defeats have been by more than a goal, while theyve not exactly been lucky. The visitors have lost each of their last five travelling matches, while theyve not won away since beating Tranmere back in September.

Crewe scored late to snatch a draw away at Morecambe last weekend, but they were anything but fortunate to do so. On the balance of play, since they created the better opportunities and dominated the ball, David Artells men probably deserved to come out on top, though given that they did find themselves behind in stoppage time, a point wasnt the end of the world.

However, as mentioned above, Newport have played well away of late; they created more than they gave away against league leaders Lincoln recently, while they could hardly have dominated more in terms of chances against Stevenage on New Years Day. Against a lesser side, the visitors ought to do well.

Unfortunately for Crewe, theyre up against a Newport side that is very good at remaining competitive on the road, even if they havent had too much to shout about from a results point of view in recent times. However, none of those five defeats have been by more than a goal, while theyve not exactly been lucky.

Considering that Newport have finished three of their last five away games with a positive expected goal difference, then its fair to say that theyve not had the rub of green, while its also fair to say that if they continue to better teams as they have done, then it wont be long before they resume winning ways on the road.

Backing the visitors to make use of last weekends FA Cup win as a platform from which to build is very much the way to go at the prices. Moreover, given that Crewes underlying numbers at home are not dissimilar to Newports on the road, its easy to feel that the visitors have been a tad underestimated in the betting.

After a somewhat unjust defeat on match-day one, Crewe made light work of beating Oldham, as they showed just how good they can be going forward, posting 3.07 expected goals for and scoring twice. As theyve surrendered an average of 0.95, theyre clearly also good at outperforming their opponents in terms of creating scoring opportunities. Creating chances is something that Crewe have done well this term, as theyre currently averaging a very solid 1.9 expected goals for.
