PRESS | Michael Flynn offers an honest assessment of defeat to Bradford City

8 December 2019

Michael Flynn admitted he’s worried about Newport County AFC’s current League Two form but insists the Exiles are still in a strong position heading into the upcoming festive fixtures where they can get back to winning ways.

James Vaughan’s second-half penalty gave Bradford City all three points on Saturday, dropping County down to 12th in the process, but they are only four points away from the top-seven with two games in hand on most of the sides above them.

“Of course I’m worried, I don’t like losing football matches,” Flynn admitted. “We need to change it around and get some wins in the league.

“I thought we competed well but we gave them a goal. We still didn’t do enough going forward but were better as in we looked more organised, tried to play a bit especially first half. But we shot ourselves in the foot.

“We lacked movement, the quality into the strikers wasn’t good enough.

“I’m not using that [Robbie Willmott injured in the warm up] as an excuse because I thought we did very well in the first half. We gave them a soft goal, Nick Townsend has made two great saves.

“I’m just frustrated that we’ve come away with nothing.”
