Striker Padraig Amond speaks to the media following NCAFC's defeat against his former Club Grimsby Town, as well as scoring his 50th goal for the Exiles in the match.

Newport County AFC striker Padraig Amond shared his pride at his landmark goal, but was disappointed with the result at Blundell Park.

Amond said, “I’ll probably take a lot more pride in it tomorrow morning and in the future. It was nice.

“It was kind of fitting to get it here as well, a place that I’ve always enjoyed playing at, for or against.

“I hope there’s at least 50 more to come. That’s the plan.”

The match saw County lose 4-2 to Grimsby, which Amond believes was a rare off-day defensively, “Very disappointed after getting a good result Saturday. Last 20 minutes we went away from what we’re good at, we got back in the game and missed a chance.

“Unfortunately then, Grimsby scored to kill the game. We came here with good hopes after the weekend and we felt like we turned a corner against Bradford.

It wasn’t like us, it was a very untypical defensive performance, conceding the goals we did. There’s nothing we can do about it now, it’s about moving on to the weekend as quick as possible and trying to get the three points at Oldham.”

The Irish striker is also keen to ensure the season does not end without a fight, “We’ve got 13 games left, it’s important we don’t let the season fizzle out.

“Everyone is playing for positions, playing for places and to make sure you’re in the Manager's plans.”
