Today's Best Bet: Saturday, May 25


Leigh Copson: Back Newport County to beat Tranmere Rovers @ 2/1 William Hill

The 2018/19 campaign has been one to remember for fans of Newport County, but could the best be to come in Saturday’s League Two Play-off Final? Newport grabbed plenty of headlines earlier this season when they sent Premier League side Leicester City tumbling out of the FA Cup in the third round before ousting Championship side Middlesbrough in the fourth round. They then managed to keep out Manchester City for 51 minutes before finally succumbing to a 4-1 defeat, but two of those goals came incredibly late to spare the Premier League champions’ blushes.

So as you can see, this Newport team is one that should not be underestimated and their opponents at Wembley on Saturday certainly will not be overlooking them. Tranmere Rovers, who edged past Forest Green Rovers in the semi-finals, did not manage to score a single goal against the Welsh club in the league this season, losing 1-0 at their Prenton Park home last September before earning a 0-0 draw at Rodney Parade back in early April.

Therefore recent history suggests that Newport have the edge and recent form suggests that is the case too. While Tranmere may have made it to the final, they have now won just two of their last nine fixtures – a far cry from that red-hot run between mid-February and late March that saw them win seven straight. Newport, meanwhile, have now gone 12 games without defeat and this strong run of form includes a 1-0 victory over champions Lincoln City and a 3-1 win against second-place Bury.

So while the bookmakers have made Tranmere the favourites for Saturday’s clash at Wembley, I am backing Newport to pull off an upset. Their record against Rovers this season, their recent good form and those two big wins over the top two are all factors that I simply cannot ignore.
