BOSS Michael Flynn once again lamented Newport County AFC’s failure to take their chances during Saturday's stalemate with Wycombe Wanderers.

Just like at Exeter a week earlier, an inability to finish off opportunities in front of goal cost the Exiles victory, although the visitors also could have won it.

“I felt we should have been out of sight in the first half but in the last half an hour we were lucky to get a point,” said Flynn following the 0-0 draw.

“It was too open for my liking. We needed to take our chances when we were on top but, thankfully, we didn’t get punished like we did at Exeter.

“Wycombe are a solid League Two team and our players worked their socks off, you could see how tired they were."

Speaking further about the match, Flynn added: “We can take away a lot of positives.

“We created chance after chance in the first half, put 15 crosses into the box and had 10 attempts on goal.

“We created chance after chance in the second half and should have scored.

“The negative was we didn’t score again and kill them off but again there was some outstanding defending when we needed it.

“Joe Day made a couple of good saves and David Pipe made a good clearance with a header.

“You can’t score in every game and when you don’t you’ve got to make sure you don’t get beaten, and that’s a positive because I think we would have lost this last season.”

He continued: “I’m disappointed. Like I said, we didn’t take the lead and go on to win it in the first half but Wycombe were the better team for 25-30 minutes in the second half.

“But the boys showed their resilience and didn’t concede.”

Meanwhile, captain Joss Labadie and defender Mark O’Brien are doubts for Tuesday's game against Cheltenham Town at Rodney Parade (7.45pm).

Labadie sustained a groin strain 44 minutes into Saturday’s draw, while O’Brien bruised his foot in the build-up.
