This season’s Leasing.com Trophy Final will be contested by Portsmouth and Salford City, with both teams reaching Wembley in very different circumstances.
The current holders of the competition, Portsmouth, looked down and out in the 90th minute when defender Christian Burgess put through his own net to put Exeter City 2-1 up in the game.
But no less than five minutes later, that feeling of agony turned to ecstasy as goals from Cameron McGeehan and John Marquis made sure that Kenny Jackett’s side returned to Wembley to defend their crown.
Salford City made sure they were this year’s challengers for the Leasing.com Trophy, as they sealed victory over fellow Sky Bet League Two side Newport County at Rodney Parade.
The game would yield no goals in normal time so off to the penalty shoot-out they went. Despite Tom King saving a what could have been Salford’s winning spot-kick, he could only watch on as team-mate Ryan Inniss’ effort flew helplessly over the crossbar.
