Competition: EFL Trophy

Market: Plymouth win

Odds: 6/5 @ 888sport

Turning their attention back to EFL Trophy duties in midweek, Plymouth will make the trip to Rodney Parade when they face off against Newport on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Newport might have thought they had found a real bounce earlier in the month thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win away at Tranmere, The Exiles have rather drastically failed to keep up that momentum. Eventually putting in a woeful display as they welcomed Premier League outfit Southampton to Rodney Parade on August 25th, Micheal Flynn’s were hit with an 8-0 drumming in front of their own supporters. Knowing that they could face another stern test when they turn their attention back to EFL Trophy duties in midweek, the Welsh outfit also failed to find any kind of boost over the weekend. Putting in what was another worrying display, Newport were hit with a 3-0 defeat away at an inconsistent Salford on Saturday afternoon.

As for the visitors, while Plymouth might have eventually had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Fleetwood on home soil over the weekend, The Greens did put in what was a largely impressive display. Unlucky to have not left with maximum points to show for their troubles, Head Coach Ryan Lowe has seen his side enjoy an eye-catching League One run. Hoping to find much more stability this season, Lowe has been quick to praise his side’s recent bounce. Losing just one of their last six matchups across all formats, a run that has seen them land 3-0 and 4-0 wins against Shrewsbury and Peterborough, we’re backing an away win here when Plymouth turn their attention back to EFL Trophy duties in midweek.
