Last Time We Met Newport County

31 August 2018

The Valiants are back on home soil this week after back-to-back away fixtures and it is Newport County provide the opponents in Sky Bet League Two, but what happened when the teams last met?

Also at Vale Park, the previous clash between the sides was back in February. With neither of them able to find the net that day, both managers were left frustrated as their respective winless runs continued.

The Valiants hadn't registered a win since the turn of the year, but Michael Tonge did come close to scoring the only goal of the game as he curled an effort off the post in the first half.

Newport did create several opportunities as they also searched to end an eight-game period without a win, but wayward finishing and some fine Ryan Boot goalkeeping prevented them from doing that.

Honours were also even in the reverse fixture at Rodney Parade in December 2017, with Anton Forrester's late strike earning Vale a point following Matty Dolan's opener.
