Peter Cavanagh's strike keeps Fleetwood on Wrexham's heels

Second-placed Fleetwood Town kept up the pressure on Blue Square Bet Premier leaders Wrexham in a hard-fought win at strugglers Newport County.

The hosts had the better of the first half, but when Fleetwood's chance came they took it.

Gareth Seddon and Andy Mangan combined before Peter Cavanagh hit home from inside the box in the 75th minute.

However, as Newport pressed for an equaliser, Kieran Charnock tackled Andrew Hughes late and was sent off.
