I was thinking about this one for a long time and at the end decided to give it a go. These two teams are not among the highest scoring ones, we can find them somewhere in the middle of League 2 goals average table. But they are both in situation where they will need to go for all 3 points.
For Newport things are getting desperate. Currently 23rd they are now 7 points behind rescuing 22nd place and although they have won 2 games in the last 3 played, their oponents were also winning important games. Now they will play a very solid outfit and I think if they open we should see goals.
Newport have average of 2,75 goals scored in their games which is very solid. They had 4 overs in the last 5 games played and they were both scoring and recieving.
On the other side, Luton are finally where they belong, among playoff contenders. They, too once played tough English tier, but in recent years they were as low as Conference (5th tier) and looking desperate. After a decade of poor results they are finally turning the trend, currently 5th they can even dream about direct promotion.
I can see both teams scoring here, both need points. They are both good scoring teams and should score 1-2 goals. My call is 2-2 draw!
