Trainer of guests confirmed that there was illness during the week and among this and players with knocks there are eight players doubtful, among them regular keeper Watson, Perch ( def.6), one of the four topscorers Van Veen ( 3g), Milelr ( att.4), while anotehr topscorer, Lund ( 3g) is suspended, McAtee ( att.4sub) and Calrcke ( def.5+1) are out, too.
Guests with soem good result recently, but remain as shown by their third from bottom position, relegation material and most part of their recent points arrived against teams in middle/low part of table.
More, they have the worst away performances ( 0-1-5 5/13 second worst away attack), on the contrary Newport is the best home team ( 4-2-0 7/3 best home defence).
Newport comes from two wins and suffered only one defeat till now. For them Azeez ( midf.0) and Leadbitter ( def.1) remain out, Demetriou ( def.3 out since August)a nd Labadie ( midf.10 1g didn't play in last round) are doubtful.
I think odds are a bit high influenced by recent run of six rounds with only one defeat but except draw against Plymouth and home draw against third on table Bradford ( at home, they scored an early penalty and then joined by Bradford), the otehr teams were nothing special. Also without so many players doubtful/out, Newport clearly superior.
