Luton went down to their first defeat in five on Tuesday night when they were on the receiving end of an incredible second half Carlisle comeback.
It is a worry that the Hatters’ surrender was the third time they have squandered a two goal lead this term, but they can bounce back at struggling but vastly improved Newport on Saturday.
The Hatters are 5/4 favourites at BetVictor and that might on the face of it look too short given County are unbeaten in eight under John Sheridan.
Newport gained a well-deserved point at title challengers Oxford midweek when dominating the first half before holding on for a point when the hosts through everything at them.
County are 23/10 to keep all three points in south Wales with the draw 12/5.
John Still’s men are out to 9/4 for a top seven finish after Tuesday’s reverse and are 6/1 to be playing League One football next term.
Meanwhile, Newport are still 10/3 to finish in the bottom two even after their recent revival and the oddsmakers clearly believe their good recent run can’t and won’t last and they are without a League win at Rodney Parade all season scoring just eight time in nine home games!
The Hatters have averaged two goas a game on the road this season and another two might just be enough to nick this one; a 2-1 win for Town is priced at 19/2 at BetVictor and that is the recommendation although the Hatters to win and both teams to score at 15/4 looks too big.
