Manager: Newport fixture battle is 'unjust'

Newport County manager Justin Edinburgh says his club has asked for the Blue Square Bet Premier season to be extended, but that has been turned down.

He feels it is "very unjust" that fixture congestion is hampering their promotion bid.

His main frustration is directed towards Gateshead, after Newport's away game with them was postponed for a fourth time.
