Newport County 1-2 Swindon Town

Michael Flynn of Newport County and Jake Reeves of Swindon compete

Goals from Swindon Town forwards Jon Obika and Andy Williams put Newport County out of the Football League Trophy in the first round.

The League One club went ahead on the stroke of half-time when Obika headed in from Williams' cross.

Williams then lobbed over home goalkeeper Joe Day to extend Swindon's lead in the 62nd minute

Yan Klukowski tapped in from Aaron O'Connor's set-up to give Newport hope, but it was in vain.
