The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

CAP­TAIN Mark Byrne is adamant there is no hint of com­pla­cency at New­port County.

The Ex­iles suf­fered a 2-0 de­feat at Craw­ley Town in mid­week, just their se­cond loss in eight League Two out­ings.

That left War­ren Feeney’s side eight points clear of the bot­tom two and Byrne ad­mits there is still some way to go be­fore they can for­get about the threat of rel­e­ga­tion and start think­ing about their sum­mer hol­i­days.

“The last cou­ple of weeks we’ve put a great shift in and we know how good we are,” said the 27-year-old mid­fielder.

“But we know we’re nowhere near safe. We’ve got to keep go­ing and keep dig­ging away.

“We’re go­ing to need the whole squad be­cause we’ve got a lot of games com­ing up.”
