Newport suffered their first loss of the new season last weekend so will be out looking to make amends for that at Rodney Parade. Other than that loss, the Welsh side have looked pretty solid this season so there is room for optimism. But this is a high profile clash with Wycombe going so well and sitting inside the top seven as Newport are. Wycombe are the joint top scorers in the division this season so will bring plenty of firepower to the party. This should be an intense match up. Newport are favourites on home to take the win at 11/8 with Wycombe at 9/5.

Newport’s four match unbeaten start to the season was snapped with a loss at current league leaders Exeter last weekend, the Exiles going down 1-0. In their other four games they have picked up a W2 D2 record and this will be just their second home game of the season. Their only other one so far produced a big 4-1 win over Chesterfield. Frank Nouble netted a hat trick in that one and is 7/4 in the anytime goalscorer market and that’s five goals in five games for him this season.
Wycombe are the top scorers in the league, jointly with Luton. Remember though that Luton scored 8 goals in their opening win over Yeovil. So that makes Wycombe’s numbers all the more impressive. They have scored at least two goals in each of their games so far in putting up a W3 D1 L1 record. They have remained perfect away from home so far with wins over Port Vale and Grimsby, both of those victories coming by a 3-2 scoreline. It’s important that their scoring remains strong because they have the third worst defence in the division.

Six of the eight previous meetings have been won to nil by the victor.
