Flynn: There’s more to come
NEWPORT manager Michael Flynn is “over the moon” to see his side five points clear in League Two – but insists they can get better.
Brandon Cooper’s late header sealed victory over 10-man Newport, who had Josh Falkingham dismissed but equalised through Will Smith after Padraig Amond’s opener.
“I am over the moon – 10 games in and we’ve got 25 points,” said Flynn (above). “The players have done fantastically but we can still improve.
“That’s the pleasing thing, we can still get better. With a bit of luck with injuries and suspensions, hopefully we can keep this run going. I’m not getting carried away because I know we can still improve.
“When we are hitting top form consistently and winning comfortably it will be harder for me to keep a lid on it.
“It’s 18 points in a month, which is unheard of here and in most places, but while I’m really happy, I’m also realistic.”
Harrogate boss Simon Weaver admitted his side must avoid a ‘hangover’ after their League Two honeymoon period ended with a three-match winless run. “For the first half-hour we were well short of where Newport were and they were the dominant force,” he said.
“Probably for the first time this year we were thinking we could go one, two, 3-0 down.
“It looked as though we respected them too much and were at sixes and sevens.
“We have to face up to two defeats and a draw in our last three games and (make sure) we don’t have a hangover effect. Two of the three games we should have won and it could have been a well ground out point today.
“We have to move on.”
