Ipswich to Win

Newport eased past Oldham’s challenge in their League One season opener. They now have a tough task on their hands as Ipswich Town makes the trip to the Portman Road. The Tractor Boys easily negotiated the challenge of Morecambe and are favourites to make little work of their lesser-known rivals. We back a victory for the visitors given their home advantage, superior standing in a higher league and five-match unbeaten run.

Over 2.5 Goals

Only one of Newport County’s last six competitive fixtures has ended with an Over 2.5 goals scoreline. Interestingly enough, that sole result was in their League Two promotion play-off meeting with Forest Green Rovers. For Ipswich, three of their last four fixtures have seen three goals or more. If their opening day 2-2 draw is any guide, we should see more goalmouth action in this cup meeting.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Newport County were on the road in their last outing, doing just enough to get past the line and secure the three points on offer with a 0-1 result. Ipswich were involved in a 2-2 draw with Morecombe and showed that they can get on the scoreboard but remain susceptible at the back. Given Ipswich’s defence and Newport’s tenacity in the final third, we expect both sides to trouble the scorers on August 10.

Ipswich vs Newport Fixture Preview

Ipswich Town

The Tractor Boys are fighting to remain relevant in English football. Now in the third tier, their ninth-place finish with Paul Cook in charge would have raised the hopes of the Ipswich Town faithful. They are in dire need to make the push for promotion and will fancy their chances this time around. They are on a five-match unbeaten run after and started the season with a great come from behind draw to get their first points of the 2021/22 League One campaign.

Newport County

Michael Flynn has the tough task of taking his Newport County charges to the Portman Road Stadium and ensure their continuity in the League Cup. The 40-year-old manager will fancy his side’s charges after withstanding a barrage of attacks from Oldham on opening day and still coming out with a 0-1 victory to show for. Kevin Ellison was their saviour on the night and they will need help from other members of the squad as they take on the might Ipswich Town in their own background.
