Newport manager: Accrington is our biggest game in 4 years

Newport County caretaker manager Mike Flynn has gone on record saying that the clubs next match against Accrington Stanley is their biggest since their return to the Football League.

“It’s a huge game for us,” he said. “I said a couple of weeks ago we had six cup finals, now it is three.

“We need to get back to winning ways, but are playing a really good team.”

Newport, who returned to tier 4 of English football in the 2013/14 season, sit 23rd and a point from safety with just three games remaining.

Accrington travel to Newport on the back of a 15-game unbeaten run as they stand 11th in League Two.

However, Flynn is optimistic after a crucial Good Friday win over Yeovil, despite suffering a 6-1 thumping at the hands of promoted Plymouth just 3 days later.

Speaking to BBC Sport Wales he said:

β€œIt was massive to beat Yeovil, I knew how big it was because I knew how difficult it was going to be on Monday (against Plymouth).

“We sweep the Plymouth result under the carpet now. The boys are smiling again.

“We’ve climbed our way to a good position and a win Saturday will make it really interesting.”

 

Debate Points

Will Newport be relegated?

Is it their biggest game since their Football League return?
