Newport County 1-0 Mansfield Town

Scott Boden
Scott Boden's goal against Mansfield gave Newport back-to-back home wins for the first time in 13 months

Newport County boosted their League Two survival hopes as they struck late to beat play-off contenders Mansfield.

Mansfield striker Matt Green hit the post as both sides struggled on a poor pitch in a goalless first half.

Ryan Tafazolli had a goal disallowed for the Stags after the break, before Scott Boden fired in late on for his fifth goal in four games.

Newport climb up to 19th in the table, eight points above the relegation zone, while Mansfield drop to ninth.
