Match ends, Newport County 2, Carlisle United 1.
Newport came from behind to move within a point of the League Two automatic promotion places and increase the relegation pressure on Carlisle.
Courtney Meppen-Walter gave Carlisle an early lead with a header when he was left unmarked nine yards out.
Adam Chapman equalised from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time when Ryan Jackson went tumbling in the area.
Lee Minshull completed County's comeback when he rifled home after Aaron O'Connor's shot had been saved.
Newport County manager Justin Edinburgh told BBC Radio Wales:
"We slightly weren't at our best first half, I thought we were slow in our tempo. But credit to Carlisle, they came and packed the midfield, made it difficult for us at times.
"But the penalty on the stroke of half-time gave us the impetus to come out second half and get a foothold in the game, and come out worthy winners.
"There was one or two things that weren't quite right but that showed the character of us that we've come from behind and won again."
