Throw into the mix their two drawn games against Mansfield in the playoff semi-finals and that’s been some really strong stuff by the Exiles. Newport have collected a total of seven clean sheets in their last ten games now. They are extremely well organised at the back and will set themselves up well knowing that they have already handled themselves well against Tranmere this term.

Newport took a W4 D3 L5 record this season in their regular season fixtures against the six teams who finished above them in the table. They were so strong at home but were much shakier on the road.

Tranmere News and Form

Tranmere really played their way into a strong position with a hot run of form from early February to the end of March. They dropped just the two points in a run of nine games. Once that unbeaten streak was snapped through, they did fall out of form at the end of the season. They won only one of their last seven games played in the regular season (D3 L3) so they suddenly because very vulnerable. They had a tight scrap against Forest Green Rovers in the play-off semi-finals.

They banked a 1-0 home advantage in the first leg and survived at the New Lawn with a 1-1 draw. Tranmere did have the benefit of their opponents picking up a red card in both legs of that tie. Tranmere have failed to score in three of their last four games against Newport and even with their top scorer James Norwood, they are going to have their work cut out in breaking this disciplined Newport defence. All four of the previous meetings have been tight, low scoring affairs. This meeting at Wembley probably isn’t going to be too much different.
