The team of allfootballpredictions rarely pays attention to the lower English leagues. Today, we decided to make an exclusion and present to you the game between Newport and Southend. The game is from Round 22 of League Two and it is set to start at 15:00 GMT 0 at Rodney Parade in Newport.

It’s high time for Newport to get a win

The team of Newport is still the leader in English League Two with only 1 point ahead of the second-placed Forest Green. The hosts are struggling to get a win for 4 games in a row and today they are more than determined to cement their leading position with 3 points.

Tough relegation battle for Southend

Southend has been involved in the relegation battle this season. Despite their recent good performances, the guests are still placed at the bottom of the league table. Southend recorded 3 wins out of the last 5 games but we are doubtful whether they will manage to oppose to Newport today.

Final thoughts

Despite the good decent form of Southend, Newport should do all it takes to grab the 3 points even with the lack of dominant and possession football. The win today may give psychological advantage to Newport for the title race.
