NEWPORT County AFC boss Michael Flynn has set his sights on landing a plum tie in the FA Cup third round after the Exiles overcame Cambridge United today thanks to skipper Joss Labadie’s brace.

Liverpool fan Flynn wouldn’t mind securing a trip to Anfield in Monday night's draw, but insists any big name away from home will do if it helps boost the club’s finances.

“I’m delighted to get into the next round of the FA Cup,” said Flynn following the 2-0 win over the U’s at Rodney Parade.

“It’s crucial for a club like ours and we’ll be glued to our screens on Monday evening hoping for a big draw.

“The boys deserve to be there so we’ll all be excited and hopefully we get a good draw as it’s only the second time in 32 years that we’ve been there.

“I’m more interested in building a club here, not just a team, and if I can help provide a training ground through the revenue we bring in then that is something I’d be delighted with and proud of.”

When asked who he fancies playing next, and where, he added: “Being a Liverpool fan I’d have to say them but any of the big clubs would be good.

“I’m not sure I want to go to Man City at the moment if I’m totally honest but Liverpool, Man United, Arsenal or even Newcastle would be big for us.

“I have to have my sensible head on and say that I’d rather be away because it would be worth so much more for the club, and that’s what’s more important to me.”

County progressed from round two after Labadie struck inside two minutes against League Two rivals Cambridge and then added another in the 82nd minute.

On the captain’s display, Flynn said: “I thought he was outstanding, and I’ve told him about the timing of his runs into the box.

“If he does that he’s going to keep adding goals to his game and I don’t think we’ll keep hold of him for much longer.”

Having taken the lead early on, the Exiles then sat back and allowed United to apply pressure, something Flynn was noticeably concerned with during the game.

“I don’t ever tell them to sit back, but sometimes it happens,” he continued.

“In the first 10 minutes of the second half we were too deep for my liking, and when we got that across we started pushing up and made the right decisions, and could have scored a few more.”
