Josh Sheehan
Newport County players celebrate Josh Sheehan's opening goa

Carlisle were beaten for the first time this season as bottom of the table Newport shocked them at Rodney Parade.

Josh Sheehan's early strike and a smart finish from Rhys Healey after a second half counter-attack secured the win for Graham Westley's side.

Carlisle's had been on a winning run of eight successive games, while the Exiles are now unbeaten in five.

Newport remain bottom of League Two but are now a point behind Leyton Orient while Keith Curle's side remain second.

Newport manager Graham Westley told BBC Radio Wales Sport: "The players have worked so hard and they looked the real deal in League Two today.

"We are an improving team and the players deserve enormous credit."
