NEWPORT County AFC manager Michael Flynn admitted he is worried by his side’s League Two form after they suffered a fourth successive defeat, going down 1-0 at Bradford City.

County frustrated the home side for almost an hour before an under-hit back-pass from defender Ryan Inniss led to a penalty when James Vaughan was brought down by goalkeeper Nick Townsend.

Vaughan scored from the spot and that was enough to give the Bantams all three points as the Exiles failed to register a shot on target until stoppage time.

“I thought we competed well, but we gave them a goal,” said Flynn. “We shot ourselves in the foot.

“We still didn’t do enough going forward, but we were better.

“We looked more organised and we tried to play a bit, especially in the first half.

“But we were lacking creativity and lacking movement.

“It’s not just the strikers, the quality into them wasn’t good enough.

“If it’s not good enough, they can’t do much. But when they got it, they were either flat-footed or they gave it away.

“I am worried,” added the Exiles boss. “I don’t like losing football matches. We need to change it around and get some wins in the league.”

Flynn’s men are down to 12th in the table, four points behind seventh-placed Northampton Town with two games in hand.

Their next two matches are against bottom two Stevenage and Morecambe.
