Newport County manager Mike Flynn is set to leave the club after Saturday’s League Two game at home to Scunthorpe.

The 40-year-old has been in charge of the Exiles since 2017 and has a contract until the end of the season.

Flynn kept the side in the Football League in his first season in charge and his four years as manager have seen them twice reach the play-offs and enjoy several money-spinning cup runs.

The club are currently 15th in League Two.

They have won just one of their last five games.

After last Friday night’s 2-1 defeat at Barrow Flynn said he refused to take the blame for his side’s “cowardly” second half performance.

“I take the blame sometimes, but I’m not taking that, I don’t care,” he told BBC Sport Wales.
