MICHAEL Flynn has revealed that he’s sought the advice of former Newport County AFC boss Justin Edinburgh ahead of tomorrow night’s FA Cup clash with Wrexham.

Edinburgh was the man who steered County to promotion with a 2-0 win over Wrexham in the 2013 National League play-off final.

And he’s now looking to do the same with Leyton Orient, who are currently top of the National League after winning 2-0 at third-placed Wrexham last Saturday.

“I’ve had a good conversation with Justin Edinburgh and he told me one or two things that we might be able to capitalise on,” said current County boss Flynn, who played in the 2013 final.

“That [2013] Wrexham team was a good team,” he added.

“If you look at it individually, name by name, I think they were stronger then but this one is possibly a better team.

“They’ve got something about them. They’re resolute, they’re not conceding many goals, they’re picking up results and they’re playing good football.

“They have a lot of possession, they can hurt you out wide, they’re solid with a good shape and good movement.”

Despite the hosts' strengths, Flynn is confident his side can prevail and claim bragging rights over their rivals from North Wales once again.

“It’s north v south and going back to my days at Barry I always wanted to get one over on the northern teams like Rhyl and Bangor,” said the Exiles boss.

“You want to prove that the south is best but, when it comes down to it, we’re all Welsh and if the worst happens and we don’t win the game I’ll be hoping that Wrexham get a good draw.

“There’ll be no sour grapes and I know Sam [Ricketts, Wrexham manager] will be thinking the same way.

“Usually I want all the Welsh teams to do well but this week I want Wrexham to have a stinker!”
