Southampton to Win

Newport have made a solid start to the domestic campaign, winning three of their first four matches, though County could come unstuck against Southampton’s Premier League quality on Wednesday. The Saints would have garnered a huge amount of confidence from their 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday and we’re tipping them to harness that new self-belief in the Carabao Cup at Newport.

Both Teams to Score

Newport are unlikely to make Wednesday’s fixture a comfortable ride for Southampton however and we expect both teams to score at Rodney Parade. County have scored in 100% of their games so far this term and they proved they could mix it with the competition’s bigger teams on their run to the Round of 16 in last season’s tournament.

Half Time Result: Southampton

Just like they were last term, Southampton have been fast starters this season and the Saints went in ahead at the break in each of their first two competitive assignments of the new campaign. It’s interesting to note that Newport have notched just two first-half efforts since the summer and with County’s habit of coming out of the blocks slowly a factor, Southampton look a generous price to establish a first-half advantage again.

Newport vs Southampton: Match Preview

Newport County

Newport made it all the way to the Round of 16 in last season’s Carabao Cup before they were knocked out of the competition on penalties by Newcastle United at Rodney Parade. The Exiles have already knocked out an opponent from a higher division this year in Ipswich, though they could find it tough to repeat the trick against established Premier League performers, Southampton.

Southampton

Southampton showed buckets of grit and determination in their 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday and manager Ralph Hasenhuttl was visibly elated with his team’s display at full time at St. Mary’s Stadium. That point should get the Saints up and running for the season and with their confidence on the rise, they should be able to play with a more of a swagger in Wales this week.
