Crewe Alexandra travel down to South Wales for their final game of the season at Newport County (Monday, 12:30pm).
Lee Bell’s side will aim to make it three wins on the spin to complete the campaign, with the Alex able to finish as high as 10th with victory - if other results go their way.
Newport sit 15th in League Two on 56 points, having endured a stop-start campaign which can be reflected in their recent five games, with three wins and two losses.
The Exiles could also finish 10th with victory, though each side above them must drop points.
Graham Coughlan took over as Newport boss in October 2022, signing a two-and-a-half-year contract with the club at the time close to the relegation zone.
The Irishman has also had spells in charge of Bristol Rovers and Mansfield Town, in addition to coaching Sheffield United’s U23’s in 2021 alongside Darren Currie.
Graham Coughlan: “Sloppiness is a real bug bear of mine and it’s something that we’ll be looking to sort out come the end of the season.”
Lee Bell: “We want to go there and put on a performance. There is no pressure on the players, they can play with freedom and enjoy the last game. But let’s be competitive and try to pick up another three points.”
Newport will assess the fitness of Declan Drysdale, James Clarke and Offrande Zanzala for the season’s finale.
Crewe will see if Elliott Nevitt and Tariq Uwakwe are available for the trip.
Newport have the upper hand in past meetings between both clubs, winning 15 out of 42 fixtures compared to the Alex’s 13 triumphs.
Earlier this season, it was the Exiles who were victorious on a cold December Friday night, coming from a goal down to win 2-1.
Anthony Backhouse will take charge of proceedings on Monday lunchtime, having last officiated an Alex game in February 2022, a 2-1 victory at Cheltenham Town.
He will be assisted by Daniel Flynn and Lisa Rachid, with Kevin Howick appointed as fourth official.
