Padraig Amond shoots at goal for Newport

32′ – Newport’s Robbie Willmott delivers a great cross into Frank Nouble at the near post but the striker can’t direct his header on target. Instead, the ball loops away from goal and towards Padraig Amond, who sends his angled volley over the crossbar.
The hosts have probably had the better chances in this first half but it’s Leeds who lead.
