Newport County 2-0 Yeovil Town

padraig Amond
Padraig Amond made if four goals in five home appearances for Newport this season when he opened the scoring against Yeovil

Newport have made their best start in the Football League since 1982 thanks to this comfortable win over Yeovil.

The Exiles bossed things, with Josh Labadie scooping a shot over from six yards before Padraig Amond headed home a corner just before half-time.

Skipper Labadie hit the bar early in the second period before he finally headed home a corner on 55 minutes.

Olufela Olomola hit the bar late on, but Yeovil now have just one win in their last eight league outings.

Newport boss Mike Flynn told BBC Radio Wales: "The boys were outstanding, they played some good football. They moved the ball around well, defended well and closed down well and the only disappointment was that we did not score more goals.

"They bounced back from disappointment last time out and showed what they are all about here. I thought the football we played was brilliant at times."
