Newport County manager Justin Edinburgh told BBC Radio Wales:

"We've had a response we would have like after last week and I thought we were fully value for our win today.

"We had a point to prove to ourselves and we did that and even the lads who get left out, when they came on, played a very big role in seeing the game through and making it a very good score line.

"They answered all the critics and the questions about them today and I'm absolutely delighted for them."

York City manager Nigel Worthington told BBC Radio York:

"I don't think we played as well as we can do or have done. We huffed and puffed a bit.

"The endeavour by the players - I can't question that at all. But we are disappointed with the three goals, so it's 'feet firmly back on the ground'.

"We've got another big game on Tuesday night and we've got to get ready for that."
