Patience Will Be Key As Tottenham Are Tipped To See Off Newport County

Newport County's reward for defeating Leeds United in the previous round of the FA Cup is a plum tie with Tottenham and the Welsh side welcome their illustrious Premier League opponents to Rodney Parade on Saturday evening...

  • Both teams scored in each of Newport's past six matches
  • Tottenham have only won three of their last 10 away games - Drawn Four, Lost Three

Newport v Tottenham    
Tips Half-Time Draw and Full-Time Tottenham Win    Best Bet @ 15 / 4  

Recent Form

Michael Flynn's men go into the match in good form as they have lost just one of their past twelve games in all competitions (won seven, drawn four) and they have defeated Walsall, Cambridge United and Leeds to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup for the first time in 41 years.

It goes without saying that a clash with Tottenham is a big step up in class for the League Two side, who are currently lying in eighth place in the table, and the Exiles are 18/1 underdogs for this weekend's match (Betfair).

Tottenham are 1/6 on but it will be interesting to see how Mauricio Pochettino approaches this fixture as he won't want to risk injuries to key players on a testing pitch in Wales, particularly with a home league game against Manchester United to come on Wednesday night.

Best Bet

Toby Alderweireld is fit again and could play some part for a Tottenham side that has only lost one of their past eleven matches in all competitions, winning eight and drawing two. However, the North London outfit haven't convinced on the road and they have won just three of their past ten away games (drawn three, lost four).

Spurs had to be patient when they beat AFC Wimbledon 3-0 in the last round, scoring all three goals in the second half, and we fancy a similar scenario is likely at Rodney Parade, where the half-time draw and full-time Tottenham win can be backed at 15/4 (Bet Victor).

Newport are capable of making life difficult for their opponents and it is worth noting that both teams scored in each of the Exiles' past six outings, with Paddy Power going 11/10 about both teams scoring on Saturday.
