Newport County vs Doncaster Rovers Tips and Prediction
With only two playoff appearances in nine seasons in League Two, Newport County appears unlikely to increase that total this year.
The last time around, Graham Coughlan’s team did come from behind to upset Crewe Alexandra, as goals from Cameron Norman and Offrande Zanzala in the second half cancelled out Lachlan Brook’s 13th-minute opener for the visitors.
Prior to their comeback victory at the Mornflake Stadium, Newport County’s goal from Priestley Farquharson was insufficient to advance to the third round of the FA Cup as Derby County’s winner from the 88th minute was sufficient.
Newport lost to MK Dons in the EFL Trophy, putting an end to their cup hopes for at least another season after their loss to the Rams.
A victory for Newport County will undoubtedly bolster the Exiles’ morale as they currently lie in 18th place, eight points above the relegation zone.
Doncaster Rovers will take on Newport County for the first time since their uninspiring draw in February 2017 under the direction of former Huddersfield Town manager Danny Schofield.
Rovers, who were demoted from League One last season, have won only twice in their last five games, placing Schofield’s team in 13th place going into the meeting at Rodney Parade.
Most recently, Doncaster lost to in-form Walsall at Eco-Power Stadium. Goals from Tom Knowles and on-loan Mansfield Town striker Danny Johnson were enough to give the Saddlers the victory.
Schofield’s team will be eager to get back to winning after being eliminated by non-league King’s Lynn Town because they were not involved in the FA Cup’s second round, unlike Saturday’s opponents.
Doncaster Rovers will once more rely on leading scorer George Miller if they are to get anything out of a challenging trip to Newport County in search of their first victory in three games.
However, with both teams currently residing in League Two’s middle of the pack mediocrity, a draw here is what we see.
