The Robins drew 0-0 with Newport and Jamie Cureton had the hosts' best chance of the match in the dying stages of a thrilling game.

Yates said: "We have kept a clean sheet, that is five unbeaten and we have to roll into Tuesday, do all those things that we did, but be better.

"I felt in the first-half we didn't really get the extra pass in their that we wanted but they didn't hurt us.

"In the second half I thought that we were more expansive, we had more about us, but we didn't create as many chances as we would have liked.

"But saying that, Jamie (Cureton) had three or four chances, Terry Gornell had a great one at the end, but as draw was a right result and there are lots of positives for us to take from it.

"I have to be satisfied with the point, it was a decent game of football, I thought that we limited them, but we couldn't quite find our killer touch or enterprise in that final third."
