Newport County 1-1 Crewe- Match Report

Crewe denied by Newport leveller

Sean Rigg's 82nd-minute header salvaged a point for Newport after they had trailed to Crewe for over an hour in a 1-1 draw at Rodney Parade.

Alex Kiwomya's third goal in four outings for Crewe gave the visitors a lead they looked set to preserve until Rigg popped up to power home substitute Jazzi Barnum-Bobb's cross.

Impressive Chelsea trainee Kiwomya hit an unstoppable drive into the top left-hand corner of Joe Day's goal 18 minutes into a wind and rain-swept game to give his side the lead.

The 20-year-old was given the ball just inside the County half after Jordan Green had been dispossessed and he quickly reached the edge of the penalty area before turning inside the final defender and hammering the ball home

County, who were seeking a first home win in the league since March 5, had the ball in the net after 36 minutes when Joss Labardie converted from Jon Parkin's flick but the goal was ruled out for offside

The veteran Parkin set the alarm bells ringing every time he got near the ball and headed just over before forcing Ben Garratt to make a brilliant point-blank save from a corner.
