Newport County AFC 5 v 1 Cardiff City FC B
Newport were very dominant throughout the first half in which several excellent chances were created. It was on 6 minutes when County took the lead through a good strike from Sam Broadribb. Minutes later the lead was doubled through a Christian Mbongompasi shot from close range.
Second half was very much the same with Newport enjoying all the possession and within minutes found themselves 5-0 up with goals from Ben Rose, Luke White and Owain Edwards. Cardiff scored a dubious penalty late on but it was a comfortable 5-1 win in County's favour.
Newport County AFC B 5 v 1 Plymouth Argyle FC B
Newport County B team faced Plymouth B at the house of sport. The game started with Newport in control of the game with Plymouth finding it difficult to gain possession and create chances of their own. The opening goal came from Ethan Preston-Watkins with a delicate side foot finish, leaving the Plymouth keeper with no chance. It seemed an only matter of time until Newport doubled their lead and this came shortly after the first, with Mo Jallow managing to get ahead of the keeper and head it into the net. However, Newport had to be careful as Plymouth were starting to find a few chances and gain confidence from this.
Second half Plymouth edged one back after a sloppy mistake from Newport and the game became stretched again. Newport managed to regain their form shown in the first opening minutes and Hamsa Mohammed put the 3rd away with an individual bit of brilliance. Newport were dominant again and the 4th goal was bagged by Hamsa for his brace. The 5th and last goal scored by Cori Bussutil secured Newport the win and the 3 points. We would like to wish Plymouth all the best for the remaining games of the season.
