Newport v Argyle - Pilgrim Punting

BOXING Day tends to be a happy occasion with all those associated with Argyle.

The Pilgrims have not lost in 15 matches on December 26 - a record that dates back to 1997 – collecting nine victories along the way.

Argyle travel to Newport County in Sky Bet League 2 this time round, and Football League sponsors Sky Bet are offering odds of 15/8 for the Pilgrims to return to Devon with another festive three points.

Last season, Argyle picked up a 2-1 win at Rodney Parade. For selecting the same outcome, a price of 10/1 is available.
If you’re feeling really lucky this Christmas, why not add a first goalscorer to your bet?

Reuben Reid got back to scoring ways on Saturday and an impressive 35/1 odds are available for the striker to notch first and Argyle to win 2-1.

Cast yourself back 57 years, when Argyle had a Christmas double header against Newport.

Christmas Day of 1957 saw the Greens travel to Wales with County visiting Home Park the following day where the hosts recorded a 1-0 win, in the only Boxing Day match against the two teams to date.

For a repeat of history, Sky Bet are offering 15/2 odds for a 1-0 Argyle win.
