NEW­PORT’S pro­mo­tion dreams have long since died a death but de­fender Ismail Yakubu says they still have much at stake – mainly their fu­tures at the club.

County have slipped to­wards the lower reaches of the ta­ble re­cently, de­stroy­ing any hopes of a play-off push and Yakubu, one of 13 play­ers out of con­tract in the sum­mer, ad­mits they have a lot to prove.

“We need to fin­ish strongly, we’ve got good play­ers in the team and we need to play for our fu­tures here, we un­der­stand that,” he said.

“It is in ev­ery­one’s best in­ter­ests to go out there and re­ally per­form as well as we can and show that we as play­ers want to be here.”
