Wins for Newport and Wrexham

Newport County and Wrexham occupy the top two positions in the Blue Square Bet Premier, after both registered resounding victories on Tuesday night.

Newport are four points clear at the summit after thrashing Cambridge United 6-2, with two goals from Aaron O'Connor. Lee Minshull, Michael Flynn, Andy Sandell and Michael Smith were also on the scoresheet for the home side.

Wrexham climbed back up to second, thanks to three late goals away at Southport. The home side took the lead, before Jay Harris equalised. In the last 12 minutes, an own goal, and strikes from Robert Ogleby and Chris Westwood meant Wrexham ran out 4-1 winners.
