Your View?

They were simply blown away by the visitors attacking movement, pace, and finishing and must have sent shock-waves through the squad in their self-belief after they were so easily dismantled. It seems Newport have had some jitters at home since the shock 6-0 defeat they suffered against Yeovil. Indeed, their impressive 1-0 away from home against Tranmere in the next game further implied Newport are more comfortable away from their home ground at the moment.

Although manager Mike Flynn attacking the refereeing performance, it must be concerning that his side conceded three times against a club who had scored eight in 10 before that. Newport needed a 97th penalty to make it 3-3 after Macclesfield had gone 2-0 up. However, despite this the character of his team to even come back into the game and take a point has to be praised to an extent. The most recent threat was in their home match against bottom-side Macclesfield.
