League Two: Morecambe 1-2 Newport County

Scott Boden struck in each half at Morecambe as Newport County earned their third win in 10 League Two games.

Defeat meant the hosts dropped a place to 15th in the table after a third successive loss, while Newport stayed 20th but moved seven points clear of the relegation zone.

Striker Boden opened the scoring in the first minute from Mark Byrne's cross.

Shaun Miller levelled after an hour, but Boden's second from Alex Rodman's fine delivery sealed Newport's win.

The victory was the Exiles' second under manager Warren Feeney, in his fifth game in charge in all competitions.
