Newport County 0-0 Swindon Town

Padraig Amond heads an effort on goal
Padraig Amond is Newport's leading goal-scorer this seasons with 20 goals

Newport County held Swindon Town to a goalless draw as both teams failed to create much in the way of scoring opportunities.

County lost both Jamille Matt and Joss Labadie in an injury-hit first half as both teams struggled at Rodney Parade.

Joe Day was the Newport hero, not for the first time this season, with 20 minutes left, when his double save from Dion Conroy kept the scores level.

Newport remain 13th in League Two, two points behind Swindon, who stay 10th.

Newport County manager Mike Flynn: "On the second half performance I'd say it is a point game especially with Exeter losing.

"Six games to go, five points behind with a game in hand, why wouldn't I be hopeful? I'm buzzing that we have conceded only one goal in our last nine home games."
