    So Tranmere beat Newport to get this bumper Bank Holiday weekend of EFL play-off finals off and running.

    But that is just the start.

    FT: Newport 0-1 Tranmere

    The Tranmere players, back at ground level, have got the champagne out and are rightly milking this for all its worth.

    I don't think Steve McNulty is letting go of that trophy any time soon - I certainly wouldn't be taking it off him!

    FT: Newport 0-1 Tranmere

    I hold my hands up.

    After 114 minutes it simply did not look like a goal would come, but it did.

    What a moment to decide what - let's face it - was an otherwise pretty drab final.

    The name Connor Jennings will forever be remembered by Tranmere fans.


    FT: Newport 0-1 Tranmere

    Tranmere lift the trophy

    Tranmere keeper Scott Davies and captain Steve McNulty lift the trophy aloft - Tranmere Rovers are in League One.

    Most of the players are draped in capes reading 'we are going up'. The party has started.

    FT: Newport 0-1 Tranmere

    The Tranmere players climb the Wembley steps to collect their play-off winning trophy.

    At the same time Newport's squad sit on the pitch - looking lonely and dejected.

    Nothing quite comes close to the play-offs.

    FT: Newport 0-1 Tranmere

    Mike Dean is clapping, throwing his hands into the air - he, like many Tranmere fans, are ecstatic.

    Newport boss Michael Flynn, meanwhile, is gathering his gutted players for a pep talk.


    FT: Newport 0-1 Tranmere

    Newport v Tranmere

    Tranmere have done it in dramatic style!

    It looked for all the world as if we were going to penalties, but Connor Jennings' 119th-minute header has seen them break Newport hearts.

    The Welsh side were impressive with 10 men and should feel hard done by, but Tranmere kept plugging away.

    Newport 0-1 Tranmere

    Keanu Marsh-Brown and Matt Dolan stood over it for Newport.

    Joe Day came up but Tranmere look like they're getting it clear...

  12. Post update

    Newport 0-1 Tranmere

    Newport have a free-kick.

    Can they make something happen?

    It's now or never, basically.


    Newport 0-1 Tranmere

    Two minutes have been added on.

    Can Newport respond?

  14. GOAL: Newport 0-1 Tranmere

    Connor Jennings

    Connor Jennings


    Jake Caprice floats a ball in and at the back post Connor Jennings heads the ball into the ground, across Joe Day and into the net.

    Newport keeper Day was moving in the wrong direction and couldn't turn back. The resolve of 10-men Newport has been broken.

    Newport 0-0 Tranmere

    James Norwood beats the defender to Ollie Banks' cross but it's not even a half-chance and his header is caught by Newport keeper Joe Day.

  16. Post update

    Newport 0-0 Tranmere

    Three minutes left to avoid penalties at Wembley.

    Surely Tranmere will create something?

  17. Post update

    Newport 0-0 Tranmere

    David Perkins is absolutely furious at a decision to award a free-kick to Newport.

    He's already in the book and should be careful.

    The free-kick is cleared for a throw-in, and you know what comes next...

  18. Post update

    Newport 0-0 Tranmere

    Keanu Marsh-Brown has made a bit of a difference for 10-man Newport.

    He hits a ball across goal and wins his side a throw-in, which can be launched in.

    Meanwhile, Tranmere bring on midfielder Adam Buxton for centre-back Sid Nelson.

  19. Post update

    Newport 0-0 Tranmere

    Allow me to tempt fate.

    I cannot see a goal coming here.

    Scott Davies

    Newport 0-0 Tranmere

    Regan Poole leaves out a tired leg and brings down Connor Jennings, and the Newport man is cautioned.

    Tranmere aren't showing much composure here though with the extra man.
