YAK PLAYS FOR HIS FUTURE
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.”
