LOOKING ahead to Tuesday and Fortress Gigg is drawing me back like a Lancastrian to an all-you-can-eat black pudding buffet.

After backing goals at the Emirates on Monday I'm going for more in League One.

Bury v Newport

Obviously I use the term ‘”fortress” loosely. Yes, we have crept into the play-off places although clearly not on the merit of out defensive talents!

Newport will be a much sterner test than the poor Notts County side we humped 4-0 on Saturday – the Exiles sit a tied third place on points and have some pretty damn impressive form under their belts although a red card last time out and various injuries may just see them light at the back.

That said it would be naive to ignore their ability to score away from home – they have failed to score only once on the road in their last seven league matches and that combined with our inability to defend (only three clean sheets in 16) certainly paves the way for what should be 90 minutes of pretty open football.

One to watch is our on-loan striker and former big-hitter Nicky Maynard who has already netted four goals in five games with three of them being the matches first goals – with stories of a decimated Newport squad rife it may just pay to back goals (and hopefully Bury goals) here.

Recommended Bets

  • Bury over 1.5 team goals (5-6, bet365)
  • Over 3.5 match goals (9-4, bet365)
  • Maynard to score (8-5, bet365)
  • Maynard to score first (5-1, bet365)
