Luke Jephcott | "We want to finish the season strong..."

Attacker Luke Jephcott wants his Newport County side to finish the season strongly and deliver performances that the fans can get behind.

The Exiles return to Rodney Parade for the second time this week as they welcome Tranmere Rovers to South Wales tomorrow afternoon.

After a run of five straight defeats in League Two, Graham Coughlan's men are eager to rediscover their good form and produce a positive turnaround in the games that remain this season. 

And Jephcott is hoping his side can do just that in front of the County faithful, starting with this weekend's penultimate home game of the campaign. 

“We want to finish the season strong,” said Jephcott. 

“We’ve been doing really well up and until a point, and the last few weeks haven’t really reflected us a team and a club. We want to put things right as soon as possible and get back to winning ways. 

“We’re remaining positive and that’s all we can do during this period. We’re focused on tomorrow and hopefully we can put a successful run of games together between now and the end of the season. 

“We understand the past few weeks haven’t gone our way and that we haven’t been performing to our standards.

“We’ve got an unbelievable set of fans here in Newport, both home and away, and we want to deliver a performance for them to be proud of. 

“They stick with us until the very end no matter the result, so it’s an exciting place to be at and we want to do well for them. 

"There’s still three games to go and I want to play my part in helping the team as much as possible. I want to try and get my first goal and get off the mark. 

“I was a bit unfortunate not to score on Tuesday night but that’s that. It’s only a matter of time hopefully and it will be a great feeling when I finally do score in front of the fans.”

He added: “As strikers, we have to be confident in our ability. It’s down to us to score goals for the team and we’ve got a great set of strikers here, so I’m sure the goals will start coming for all of us. 

“All of us here are different and have different abilities. You’ve got Will with the goals he’s scored this season and Seb with his pace too. We’re all different and that’s what makes us a strong group.  

“Since arriving, i've really enjoyed it. Having the chance to play games and having a real impact in them has been really good.

"It’s all about building minutes for me now between now and the end of the season, and then next season hopefully fans will get to see the best of me."
