KEANU Marsh-Brown is hoping for more success in front of goal to help Newport County AFC in their bid to claim a place in the League Two play-offs.

The Guyana international finally broke his duck for the Exiles against Yeovil Town last Saturday after failing to find the back of the net in his first 15 appearances in County colours.

Fresh from playing a part in his country’s qualification for this year’s Gold Cup, the 26-year-old struck in second half injury-time to seal a 3-1 win at Huish Park.

The victory means the Welsh club are six points off the play-off places with eight matches remaining – they have at least one game in hand on all the teams above them.

Promotion-chasing Tranmere Rovers are next up for Michael Flynn’s men, whose triumph in Somerset gave them back-to-back league wins for the first time since September.

And having opened his account for County, Marsh-Brown is looking forward to making a late charge for League One.

“I’ve been itching to get my first goal,” he told iFollow Exiles. “A big part of my game is adding goals and I’ve been dying to score one.

"It’s been tough for me trying to get back through injury and getting on the pitch injury-free.

"To score is just a relief, I thank God for that. It’s been a long time coming and hopefully I can keep going now for the rest of the season."

He added: “We’ll go into the last eight games of the season wanting to give it a real push and we’ll see where it takes us.

“Hopefully, if we put in performances similar to Saturday’s then we’ll achieve something. You never know what could happen.

“We’ve still got to play the teams which are up there so that’ll be tough, but we’ll head into them with confidence off the back of performances like this one.

"If we play our football then we’ve proved before that we can beat anyone in this league.”

Marsh-Brown continued: “Tranmere Rovers will be a really big game. They are doing really well, currently in the play-offs and they’ve got some real momentum behind them.

"But we always believe we’ll win any game at home – we make Rodney Parade a tough place to come for every team.

"Anything is possible in this league and if we go into the game with the right mindset, we can get a result.

"Manny Monthe and Mark Ellis are former teammates of mine from Forest Green and I’ve played against the rest of their squad. They’ll make it difficult and it’ll be a good game.

"My message to the supporters is just to get behind the boys, get behind the team, we need that 12th man and it could give us that lift to climb up the table."
