These are our Gillingham vs Newport predictions and tips:

Gillingham to Draw First Blood

We’ll kick-start our Gillingham vs Newport predictions by taking a look at the ‘first team to score’ market. It’s important to point out that Newport County tend to concede first when they play; they were trailing at half-time in four of their last five matches, and conceded the first goal in three of those games. This is in contrast with Gillingham, who opened the scoring in four of their last five matches. Taking everything into consideration, we are fairly confident that the hosts will register the first goal in this match.

Both Teams to Score

Gillingham and Newport County have scored and conceded their fair share of goals these past few weeks. It’s fair to note that Gillingham found the back of the net in all of their last eight matches; conversely, they have seen their defense breached seven times in their last six matches. Interestingly, both teams were on the scoresheet in four of Gillingham’s last six matches; and considering both teams also scored in Newport’s last three games, we should expect goals at both ends.

A High-scoring Affair

We’ve established that both teams were amongst the goals in Newport County’s last three matches. It’s also noteworthy that they’ve been involved in a lot of high-scoring games. As a matter of fact, Newport’s last six matches have seen over three goals scored per game on average, and five of those matches went above the 2.5 goal mark. Considering Gillingham have scored in eight consecutive matches, we believe that these teams will score up to three goals between them.

Gillingham vs Newport Match Preview, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Gillingham

Gillingham have had some mixed results in recent weeks; they won two, drew two and lost two of their last six matches. It’s fair to point out that Neil Harris’ men have no losses in their last three games; can they extend that run to four matches today?

Newport

Like today’s opponents, Newport County have not been very consistent these past couple of months. They won three of their last six matches, whilst suffering three losses. Graham Coughlan’s men suffered a 3-2 loss against Harrogate Town in their midweek fixture; it’ll be interesting to see if they can bounce back from that loss by winning this match.

Gillingham vs Newport Lineups

Scott Bennett picked up a knock in Newport County’s previous match, and will be a doubt for this match. Likewise, Gillingham will not be able to call upon the services of Tom Nichols, who is serving a one-game suspension.
