Newport County 1-0 Carlisle United

Scot Boden
Scott Boden is Newport County's top scorer this season

Scott Boden eased Newport County's relegation worries with his 11th league goal of the season to defeat Carlisle.

Newport's top scorer tapped in Alex Rodman's set-up as they moved 10 points clear of the League Two drop zone with their first home win since November.

County dominated and Boden had wasted a first-half one-on-one when the striker dragged his shot wide.

Carlisle ended the game with 10 men as Brandon Comley was sent off for a second yellow late on.

Newport's only concern was an injury to defender Scott Barrow, who was taken off on a stretcher with a head injury.
