Newport County – Exeter Match Prediction | 21-09-2019 10:00

However, that has not proved to be the case so far for Exeter City as Taylor has seen his side win in both of their league fixtures and the midweek triumph over Championship side Ipswich Town, courtesy of a penalty shoot-out, shows just how much freedom the Grecians are playing with at the moment. As seen following the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, a team can take a while to adjust to life under new direction when a stalwart of the club leaves the managers chair.

Although they suffered a heavy opening day defeat to title hopefuls Mansfield Town, they have bounced back with a 1-0 victory over Crewe in the league and an impressive 4-1 victory over Cambridge United in the League Cup. However, under the stewardship of former player Michael Flynn, Newport County have proved to be no pushovers despite having one of the lowest budgets in the division.

The man who was previously the longest serving manager in the country has been replaced by Matthew Taylor, and the new mans reign has been going pretty well so far. The second successive play-off final defeat signalled the end of an era this summer as Paul Tisdales time at Exeter City came to an end as he left for a fresh challenge. This weekend, however, sees them welcome a Newport County side who are no strangers to upsetting the odds and with both sides looking to start the season on a good run of form, we should be in for an entertaining afternoon at St James Park.

Following last weekends 3-2 defeat to Crewe Alexandra, in which they saw a 2-1 lead overturned in the last few minutes, County are now without a win in their previous six in the league, a run which has seen them slip out of play-off contention and in to 13th position. Prior to upsetting the Foxes, Newport County had been on a pretty poor run which had seen much of their excellent work in the first half of the campaign begin to come unstuck.

However, if you want something which offers a bit more of a return and are prepared to trade this off with an increased risk, we think we have got you covered.

Exeter City vs Newport County - 1:1 (Draw)

That is exactly what happened for Newport County as they managed to put their blip in League Two to one side as they saw off Premier League Leicester City in front of the BBC Sport cameras and a stunned Gary Lineker. However, this weekend they return back to their bread and butter as they welcome Exeter City to Rodney Parade. A run in the FA Cup can often prove to be quite the distraction for sides who are perhaps up against it in the league, as it brings additional revenue and can produce some of the most famous matches in a clubs history.

With both of these sides looking stronger and stronger with each passing week, we think that they will both go for the attack from the off. This, combined with a head to head record which sees plenty of goals scored, leads us to believe that backing both teams to hit the back of the net is the best way to go in this fixture.

However, the comparative league form of these sides is hard to ignore and given that the Grecians have a very healthy record on the road, we think that backing an away win with the safety net of the Draw No Bet clause represents the best chance of a return from this fixture. With home advantage on their side and that win over Leicester still fresh in their mind, Newport should be confident of taking the points in this one.

Making the trip to Rodney Parade is an Exeter City side who are still trying to adjust to life without top scorer Jayden Stockley following his transfer to Championship club Preston North End earlier this month. The Grecians were on a good run prior to that move with four wins in their last five outings, but last weekends 0-0 stalemate with lowly Morecambe demonstrated their need to find a replacement for Stockleys goals if they are to earn a spot in the play-offs come the end of the season.
