Match Report by Andy Gunn

A minute’s silence was impeccably observed before the match to mark the untimely passing of UCL administrator Jeremy Biggs.

The Swans’ long unbeaten run, stretching back to September, was ripped to shreds by the hosts. The visitors were sluggish to start and didn’t manage to mount a meaningful attack until the twenty second minute. By then it was already too late as the home side had raced to a two goal lead. First Suleiman Nassor and then James Bessey-Saldanha calmly slotted the ball past keeper Mark Osborn and Newport’s dismal record of losing every game that they have ever played against Nirvana looked set to continue. The Swans’ luck appeared to be changing as Luke Emery knocked the ball past Aaron Harris to pull a goal back but what hope Newport had of drawing level before half time evaporated eight minutes later when Bessey-Saldanha hit a hard, low shot to score his second goal of the game.

The second half struggled to get going as both sides found it hard going on a heavy pitch. There were a handful of half chances for each side and as the game threatened to fizzle out Dom Lawless’ goal bound shot was saved excellently by Harris with his legs to deny the Swans a late lifeline. In truth Newports fate and the outcome of the game were decided in a costly first twenty minutes.
