The results have steadily improved since their opening weekend 4-1 hammering at home against the New Saints.
The defeat in their first home game of the season means that Chris Hughes’ team have now lost three straight league matches on home soil dating back to last season.
The big factor in that recent underwhelming home form is their poor defensive displays, as they have conceded at least three goals in each of the three home losses.
Cefn Druids have made a nightmare start to the new league campaign in the Welsh top-flight, losing all three of their opening matches. The visitors have conceded at least two goals in each of their three league defeats this season against Connah’s Quay, Flint Town United and Barry Town United.
The early season defeats mean that Cefn Druids have suffered 12 straight losses in the Welsh top-flight. They have also conceded at least two goals in all of the defeats.
Niall McGuinness’ team have also failed to win in their previous ten matches in the Welsh top-flight, suffering nine defeats in the process. The visitors have also conceded at least two goals in each of the nine recent defeats on their travels.
To make matters worse, the visitors have lost the last five meetings between the two teams, conceding at least two goals in each of the matches.
PlusBet.net predicts that Newtown will record another victory in a high-scoring encounter to leave the visitors pointless this season.
