A FOURTH Wembley trip awaits Newport County AFC after Sunday's penalty shoot-out victory over Mansfield Town.

The Exiles will play either Forest Green or Tranmere Rovers in the League Two play-off final on Saturday, May 25.

Full details of ticket prices and on-sale dates for this tie will be released shortly.

The Exiles have been allocated an initial 19,000 tickets at Wembley Stadium.

The club has enjoyed mixed fortunes on its three previous trips to Wembley – winning one match and losing two.

County's first Wembley appearance was under manager Justin Edinburgh, against York City in the FA Trophy final in May 2012.

The match ended in a 2-0 loss for the Exiles, and York returned to Wembley a week later, winning promotion to the football league in that year's Conference play-off final.

When County returned to Wembley 12 months later, they too were chasing a return to the football league.

Wrexham were the opponents that day – the first time two Welsh teams had faced off at England's national stadium.

Late goals from Christian Jolley and Aaron O'Connor

sealed a memorable win, which Edinburgh later described as the best day of his management career.

“We didn’t play particularly well in the final,”

Edinburgh told the Argus in a December 2018 interview

. “It was a scrappy game and Wrexham had one or two half chances, our goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley had to make a couple of smart stops.

“But I always believed when we had Christian Jolley in the form he was that we just needed one chance."

The side's most recent Wembley appearance, under boss Michael Flynn, was the fourth-round FA Cup replay against Tottenham – the reward for a hard-fought 1-1 draw at Rodney Parade in which Harry Kane saved the Premier League side's blushes with a late equaliser.

“I was a little bit relieved, maybe a lot,”

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said after the 1-1 draw

. “First half, we were so poor. Full credit to [Newport], they were fantastic."

And though first-half goals sealed a

2-0 Tottenham victory in the Wembley replay

, Flynn said afterwards he was "very proud of the effort and work-rate" from his side, who put in a brave performance.

Following Sunday's semi-final heroics, Flynn will be hoping his players can show similar grit in a fortnight's time when County take to the Wembley pitch for the fourth time on May 25.

Tickets for the play-off final will be able to purchase online via a partner, in person and via telephone.
