Wycombe's Dominic Gape keeps a close eye on Newport midfielder Sean Rigg, but neither side could find the net at Rodney Parade

A goalless stalemate saw Newport and Wycombe lose ground in League Two.

Both sides had chances with Wycombe goalkeeper denying Padraig Amond early on then Joe Day at the other end superbly saved Luke O'Nien's curling effort on the half hour.

In the second-half Day thwarted Josh Umerah then Craig Mackail-Smith before Anthony Stewart's header was cleared off the Newport line.

Amond missed a late chance to win it for Mike Flynn's side.

Newport County manager Mike Flynn toldBBC Radio Wales: "I am frustrated because in the first half we had enough chances to win three football matches.

"We started brightly in the second half as well, but then Wycombe were by far the better team and pinned us in.

"By the end, we are probably grateful that we didn't lose. We kept a clean sheet and there are some positives... we are moving in the right direction."
