Going under 2.5 goals

We've pointed out that Newport County failed to score in four of their last five games; they managed just one goal in that five-game stretch. As a result of their lack of goals, Newport County's matches have mostly been low-scoring games; all of their last five games saw less than three goals scored. We should also mention that Luton Town conceded just twice in their last four games; and all of those games went below the 2.5 goal margin. With this in mind, we shouldn't expect a lot of goals in this match.

Can Newport County spring a surprise against Championship Luton?

Not only are these teams in different leagues but the respective form of the duo couldn't be much different either – and that does not bode well for away side, Newport County. Sure, Luton Town could make a change or two to their lineup but it's still going to be a big ask.

Luton Town extended their unbeaten run with a 1:1 draw at Burnley; they have no losses in seven games, with four wins and three draws. It's worth noting that Luton Town have drawn three games in a row; they'll fancy their chances of getting the win against an out-of-form Newport County team.

Luton Town Predicted lineup – Horvath, Osho, Bradley, Potts, Bree, Campbell, Freeman, Clark, Bell, Adebayo, Morris

Newport County have not exactly enjoyed their best run of form lately; they are winless in their last five matches across all competitions, with two draws and three losses. James Rowberry's men will be gearing up for their first EFL Cup fixture; will they be able to snap their unwanted streak?

Newport County Predicted lineup – Townsend, Drysdale, Dolan, Demetriou, Norman, Bowen, Wildig, Bennett, Evans, Zanzala, Bogle
