County to im­prove poor record against Steve­nage

The Racing Paper - - Rugby League Football - by David Jack­son

STEVE­NAGE travel to

NEW­PORT for what is the big­gest game on the League Two pro­gramme with third place County host­ing fifth place Town and a home win is def­i­nitely due.

These two have played each other eight times with New­port win­ning only the once and that was four years ago on their home turf. Steve­nage suf­fered de­feat at Ex­eter two games ago on their last en­counter with a side near the top of the di­vi­sion and, with County hav­ing drawn their last two, a close game is ex­pected with New­port edg­ing home at 6/5 with Marathon­bet.

Colch­ester and Craw­ley will be look­ing for three points to edge closer to the play-off and au­to­matic pro­mo­tion places and United look the win­ner given their at­tack­ing prow­ess and goalscor­ing form.

De­spite suf­fer­ing de­feat in two of their last three games Colch­ester have still

scored 25 goals mak­ing them the league’s top scor­ers and the HOME WIN WITH BOTH TEAMS SCOR­ING is a nice 14/5 with Betvic­tor.

FOR­EST GREEN travel to Northamp­ton who are strug­gling in third bot­tom.

De­spite two re­cent draws an away win looks likely given that Rovers have had an un­beaten start to the new sea­son and Bet­fair of­fer a de­cent 19/10.

MK DONS travel to Cam­bridge ly­ing three points off an au­to­matic pro­mo­tion place and they will want to en­sure they don’t fall too far be­hind New­port, Ex­eter and Lin­coln.

Both Skybet and Uni­bet are pric­ing the away win at a rea­son­able 13/10.
