Wycombe Wanderers kept up their superb home form with an excellent 2-0 victory over Newport County.

Nathan Tyson and Adebayo Akinfenwa were the matchwinners for the Blues with two brilliant goals.

Tyson opened the scoring on 15 minutes with a fantastic finish after a flowing move. Ebere Eze produced a magnificent flick into the path of Luke O'Nien before the midfielder found Tyson who danced past Ben White before slotting coolly past Joe Day.

Akinfenwa then made the game safe on 78 minutes when he chested expertly in the box before walloping a volley past a despairing Day.

Wanderers made a bright start to proceedings with Paris Cowan-Hall heavily involved early on.

Akinfenwa had a half-chance when he met Joe Jacobson’s excellent corner on four minutes but headed over under pressure.

With the home side on top, Cowan-Hall had an opportunity on 13 minutes when he met Ebere Eze’s through ball but saw his shot blocked for a corner from 10 yards.

Tyson then gave the Blues a thoroughly deserved lead with County being put under pressure early on.

Newport had barely had a sniff and their first chance came on 20 minutes as Matt Dolan broke through but his daisycutter was easily held by Scott Brown.

The visitors started to be a bit more attacking and Frank Nouble headed straight at Brown from David Pipe’s cross on 23 minutes.

Back came the Blues and Dominic Gape surged down the right moments but his 20-yarder was comfortably held by Day.

Nouble came very close to grabbing an equaliser for the visitors on the half-hour mark when he burst past Jacobson and his cross-shot went agonisingly wide.

The half fizzled out with both sides enjoying spells of possession but not creating a great deal.

County came out on fire in the second half and just 20 seconds in, Joss Labadie crashed a shot against the crossbar from 25 yards with Brown beaten.

Akinfenwa almost got on the end of Cowan Hall’s raking long ball on 52 minutes but Day averted any danger by collecting the ball.

Newport bounced back and Nouble was aboyt to pull the trigger a minute later but was denied by a sensational Jacobson challenge.

County were certainly on top, penning Wanderers back but Dan Scarr was leading from the front, proving a colossus for the home side.

The game was becoming very open and Eze got the ball in the box on 70 minutes but his scuffed effort was handled well by Day.

Akinfenwa then grabbed his 12th of the season before substitute Padraig Amond almost pulled one back for the visitors but Gape cleared his header off the line with nine minutes remaining.

County skipper Labadie then received his marching orders on 89 minutes for a second bookable offence.

Gape almost grabbed a third with a ferocious volley from distance but Day tipped over superbly.
