This top of the table clash proved to be a slow burner as both sides cancelled each other out. It was the Swans that started better as they tried to impose control over the proceedings. However, the Tigers who took the lead when Spencer Tinkler’s pin point cross found the head of Tyler Wright who looped his header over the keeper. After their goal Holbeach livened up and became much more competitive. Fazel Koriya had a golden chance to level towards the end the half but skyed his shot over from close range.

The second period was a fairly tepid affair as the pace of the game dropped. Five minutes into the half the ball stuck under Koriya’s foot as it looked easier to score from 2 yards out. Both sides played some nice passing football but lacked penetration in the final third. Newport had to wait until the eightieth minute to get a deserved equaliser as Adam Pryke powerfully headed home Darryl Smith”s corner.

This was a match of few chances, if the Swan’s had been more clinical in front of goal they could have stolen all three points but upon reflection a draw was the fair result.
