Saikou Janneh’s Newport County AFC are second in the Sky Bet League Two table as a result of a home victory against Tranmere Rovers on Saturday.

Saikou Janneh’s lone goal secured the win for the Welsh outfit which ensured that Newport County secured their fourth win of the 2020/21 League Two season.

The win was a fitting birthday gift to manager Michael Flynn who celebrated his 40th Birthday over the weekend.

As the game drew to a close, Saikou Janneh could have increased his goal tally when he pounced on a pass from teammate Scot Twine only for him to be denied by Tranmere stopper Murphy.
