Swans Make Hay In The Spring Sunshine

Vs Leicester Nirvana UCL Prem (Home) By Tony Webster

Newport recorded their first ever victory over Nirvana side in emphatic style, scoring six against their visitors without reply. They could not have got off to a better start at a sun drenched Willen Road when they took an early lead after Arjuna Govia failed to collect Liam Smyth’s cross, Gary Brook was on hand to gratefully knock in the opening goal from close range after only four minutes. The home side doubled their lead with twenty-one minutes on the clock when a Keith Williams free kick was headed towards goal by Dave Baker, Govia made a good save but could only manage to parry the ball to Elliott Sandy who made no mistake with his header. Five minutes later Smyth superbly released Sam O’Neill who was wiped out by the advancing keeper, Dom Lawless stepped up to calmly convert the resultant penalty. Newport began to turn on the style and it was not long before Govia was called into action once again, this time diving to his left to produce a good save from Sandy’s low, hard shot as the Swans threatened to run riot. Nirvana produced their first real attempt on the Swan’s goal just before half time when Jurelle Phillip had his long range shot blocked, the striker was first to the loose ball and was again frustrated as his second effort was also blocked.

Newport picked up where they had left off after the break, taking only eight minutes to stretch their lead when Sean Phillips sliced his clearance straight to Lawless who mercilessly rifled his shot into the back of the net. On a rare venture forward Nirvana found some space with a well worked move that ended in Yaegan Gore’s strike being saved by the outstretched leg of Mark Osborn. However, it was only a stay of execution as Lawless scored a fine individual goal, beating three players before beating the keeper with a lovely finish from the edge of the area to claim his hat trick. Three minutes later dogged determination in midfield from Smyth saw him stab the ball through to O’Neill who had the relatively easy task of stroking home the Swan’s sixth goal. Substitutes Shaquille Master and Will Gonga had half chances to give Nirvana a consolation goal in the final ten minutes but neither managed to trouble Osborn’s goal. The Swans defence held firm to record a clean sheet as they came close to scoring another goal when Lawless saw his effort cleared off the line by Gore. The final chance of the afternoon fell to Lawless, Govia did well to tip the striker’s late shot past the post. This was a setback for Nirvana who had named a largely young and inexperienced side as they continue to rebuild their squad, the Swans had too much experience on the day as they controlled the game from the first minute to the last without ever needing to get out of first gear.
