York City 0-1 Newport County

Mark Byrne of Newport battles away with York's Kenny McEvoy
Newport secured their first win of 2016 with victory at York

Warren Feeney's first game as Newport County boss saw them beat bottom side York City through Aaron Collins' goal.

Feeney, appointed on Friday following John Sheridan's departure to Oldham, saw Collins find the net with a low drive into the bottom corner.

York stepped up the pressure on Newport with Dave Winfield and Vadaine Oliver going close for the home side.

Debutant keeper Mitchell Beeney denied Oliver as Newport held out for their first win in five games.

County are six points clear of the League Two relegation zone while York remain bottom, three points off safety.

York City manager Jackie McNamara told BBC Radio York:

"I thought we started very slowly. We were on the back foot and it was very poor how we started the game.

McNamara on York v Newport

"I thought after that we got into it and started moving the ball and we caused them some problems.

"But I'm disappointed, I think it was a game we shouldn't be losing. That's six points I feel we've wasted.

"We have to take our opportunities when we get them."

Newport County manager Warren Feeney told BBC Radio Wales: "It was such a massive game but I had every confidence in the players.

"I would have taken a draw before the game, as long as we didn't get beaten.

"I thought the boys showed desire and determination and it was a great result. The boys fully deserved that."
