Newport 1-2 Tamworth

Blue Square Bet Premier

Two second-half goals gave Tamworth victory at Newport in the Blue Square Bet Premier.

Newport controlled the first half but the visitors went ahead two minutes after the interval with Kieron St Aimie scoring following a defensive mistake.

Iyseden Christie doubled their lead 12 minutes later with a powerful header after being left unmarked.

Newport pulled a goal back on 74 minutes through Darryl Knight's volley but Tamworth held on for victory.


Newport County manager Justin Edinburgh told BBC Radio Wales:

"When we're dominating possession and putting the ball into the box and creating chances we've got to punish teams.

"The second half showed that when they had their chances punished us, although they were poor goals, certainly the first one.

"That gave them a lift to go on to win the game. But I'll certainly take a lot of positives from the performance - it's the best performance I've had since I've been here."
