Newport scored in 91% of their away games this term and they scored five times in their semi-final victory over Forest Green. Seven of Morecambe’s 10 clashes with the top six this season saw BTTS land, while they lost both meetings with Newport despite scoring.
Value lies with goals at Wembley
We have faith that these two will shake any nerves ahead of this game and continue their good form in front of goal. Newport only made it here after a 4-3 loss in extra-time at Forest Green in the semis, while they conceded over a goal per game on the road in the regular season.
However, the Welsh side scored in 91% of their trips this term and they should pack a goal threat here. Newport won five of their eight clashes with the four sides above them (D1 L2) including two wins over Morecambe. Both teams scored in both of those clashes.
Both teams scored in seven of Morecambe’s 10 clashes with the top six and we’re backing more goals in this encounter. Meanwhile, the Shrimps lost five of eight meetings with the top five and they lost nine times in their visits to the top 16 sides in the division, so a 2-1 win for Newport is our correct score prediction.
– Newport scored in 91% of their away games this term
– Seven of Morecambe’s 10 clashes with the top six saw BTTS land
– Morecambe lost nine of 15 away games to the top 16
