Grandstand - Exiles v Tranmere

Postby reebok0165 » October 16th, 2020, 5:09 am

Saturday October 17th 2020.
Newport County v Tranmere Rovers.


Newport County and Tranmere Rovers have met on twenty seven occasions.
Tranmere have achieved the league double three times while County twice.

Most recent meetings between both clubs:
1979 / 1980:
Newport County 2-0 Tranmere Rovers. Goals from John Aldridge and Steve Lowndes.
Tranmere Rovers 0-2 Newport County. Two goals from Nigel Vaughan, one a penalty, earned County this victory, the first of  ten successive league victories. County were eventually promoted to Division Three while Rovers finished just below mid table.

1987 / 1988:
Tranmere Rovers 4-0 Newport County.
Newport County 0-3 Tranmere Rovers.
Tranmere finished the season mid table while County finished bottom in 24th position, nineteen points adrift of 23rd placed Carlisle, and were thus relegated from the Football League, not to return until twenty five years on in 2013.

2014 / 2015:
Tranmere Rovers 0-0 Newport County.
This early season draw saw County 17th and Rovers 15th after eight games each
This was Joe Day's fourth appearance for County on loan from Peterborough Utd.

Newport County 1-1 Tranmere Rovers.
Rover, desperate for points being near the drop zone, took the lead in first half injury time from Rory Donnelly. Play-off hopefuls County leveled late on through Mark Byrne. Rovers were now twentieth after twenty nine games but were eventually relegated to the Conference come the seasons end while County failed to make the play-offs.

2018 / 2019:
Tranmere Rovers 0-1 Newport County.
This was a third successive league away win for County, seven days after Yeovil thrashed County 6-0 at Rodney Parade. The games only goal came from Fraser Franks in the first five minutes, his second for the club.

Newport County 0-0 Tranmere Rovers.
Eight players received yellow cards throughout the ninety minutes while two Rovers players were spared from red cards during the second half. With seven games remaining, County were seven points (taking goal difference into account) outside of the play-offs while Rovers were as good as certs for the play-offs with five to play.

League Two play-off final, Wembley:
Tranmere Rovers 1-0 Newport County AET.
County went into this match unbeaten in their previous twelve matches.
After a goalless ninety minutes in which both sides appealed for penalties and County's Mark O'Brien was sent off shortly before full time, extra time it was. It took Tranmere almost the full thirty minutes to score the games only goal against County's ten when Conor Jennings scored at the Tranmere end. Unlucky thirteen after a twelve match unbeaten run for County.

Managers:
Newport County - Mike Flynn.
Tranmere Rovers - Mike Jackson.

Head to head:

Both managers have never met as opposing managers but both were team mates at Blackpool between June 2007 and May 2008.

Excited to see Janneh. Podge on the bench yet again...our best finisher. I guess it's great we have the depth to be able to start him on the bench.

Lets hope Mike Dean hasnt had a word in his ear :evil:

No proof , dont care what anyone says but IMO he must have had words with the ref at the play off final at half time as he gave everything to Tranmere in the second half after a good first half performance.
How else can you explain not giving us the pen ??
