AFC Telford 2-1 Newport County

Blue Square Bet Premier

Sean Newton's penalty gave Telford all three points against a visiting Newport side who had two men sent off.

Richard Davies put the Bucks ahead from the edge of the area after Dwayne Samuels' cross was only half-cleared.

County equalised through Danny Rose's fine 30-yard free-kick, but Newton restored Telford's lead when Gary Warren fouled Andy Brown in the area.

Newport's Scott Rogers was sent off for a lunge on Samuels before Tommy Doherty earned a second yellow for dissent.
