Newport County 0-1 Stevenage

Ben Tozer of Newport County is challenged by Ben Sheaf of Stevenage
Stevenage manager Dino Maamria was assistant manager at Newport County under Graham Westley

Stevenage boss Dino Maamria's return to Rodney Parade was a happy one as his side made it two wins on the bounce with victory over Newport County.

Chris Whelpdale's goal on the stroke of half-time was enough to condemn County to a fourth game without a win as hopes of a play-off push all but faded.

Danny Newton missed two chances late on to put the game beyond Newport but Stevenage were not made to pay.

Newport drop one place to 13th, while Stevenage remain 16th.
