Luke Hannant of Cambridge in action against Newport
Luke Hannant (centre) went close for Cambridge United early in their game against Newport.

Cambridge United and Newport County earned second successive draws after a goalless League Two encounter.

Padraig Amond and Danny McNamara had early Newport chances while Jabo Ibehre and Luke Hannant fired wide for the hosts.

County's Joss Labadie flashed a shot wide of the post and went close with a header in the second half.

Robbie Willmott was denied by home keeper Dimitar Mitov but both sides had to settle for a point apiece.

Newport County manager Michael Flynn said: "Without being an exciting start to the season, it's a solid start to the season. Being unbeaten is important.

"This is a difficult place to come, Cambridge have improved and on another day, we could have won that game one or two nil."
