Newport win lifts them off the foot of League Two

Newport County's new boss Michael Flynn recorded two wins from his opening two games, as a second half penalty from Ryan Bird proved the difference for County away at Morcambe this evening.

The Exiles are now seven points from safety and off the bottom of League Two - having been 11 points adrift when Graham Westley was dismissed.

Next up for County is a home tie against Blackpool on Saturday.
