Goalpost change forces Newport delay

Kick-off in Newport County's crucial Blue Square Bet Premier clash against Alfreton was delayed 10 minutes because goalposts had to be changed.

Shortly before kick-off officials discovered goalposts at one end of the Rodney Parade ground were six inches too high.

That prompted a late start at the ground that also hosts Newport Gwent Dragons and Newport RFC rugby teams.

Newport have already secured a Conference play-off spot.
