Forwards shine as County earn third win on the spin

NEWPORT COUNTY 2 AFC TELFORD UNITED 1

SECOND half goals from Christian Jolley and Danny Crow gave Newport all three points against their disciplined visitors who remain bottom of the Conference National.

The Exiles powered up to third, level on points with Kidderminster with games in hand after Jolley's header just after the break and a strike from an almost impossible angle by Crow made Telford's late strike nothing more than a consolation.

County also blooded new signing Rhys Griffiths from the bench ahead of four successive away games over the next two weeks as they look to maintain their push for promotion.

Excellent, 3 points all that matter now. Well done boys and just reward for Danny Crow.

A County win at Gateshead is essential on Tuesday as the top 6 teams all have winnable matches on Tuesday. Depending on results County could be 1st or 6th by Wednesday !

Looked a bit better at the back today, but still shakey when Pipe goes forward and little cover for him, but that said the game was enjoyable and another welcome 3 points. Four away games on the trot now should tell us if we are going up this year.But being the eternal optimist I firmly now belive that we can win this league if we can grind out the points from the next 4 away games

Well done county but still edge of the seat stuff with Newport again conceding a late goal. All us fans have been saying for ages now that we need to shore up our defence. Better teams than Telford will make us pay if we contiue to lose our concentration and we will be chasing the league rather than leading it.

i think the county fans can forgive lenny for his gaff yesterday.

his contribution over the 4 games of the revivial has been immense.

lenny just no more coaching sessions from alan (only joking alan dont take offence and report me to the argus :-))

in the bad run if we had played teams like telford we would have lost.so the fact we have won the strikers have scored and we have all 3 points says it all

so pleased for danny crowe, he was Doing everything right as a team player but not scoring , to get the winner yesterday will do his confidence a huge boost.

well done to JOLLEY to , slowly getting back to his best . you cannot keep a quality player down and as i said a few weeks back an IMPACT player, expect the unexpected.

nice to see charlie henry playing against us again , but it proves the old moto that sometimes the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. maybe he should have persevered at county.

gateshead hopefully on tuesday and a chance to go top . but watch out county GATESHEAD WON 4-0 yesterday.

the pack that are going to chase the title and play off places i think have broken away from the pack.

i expect to see MANSFIELD, KIDDERMINSTER , COUNTY AND WREXHAM IN THE TOP FOUR POSITIONS COME THE LAST FIVE GAMES

WELL DONE FOR YESTERDAY LADS !

Not quite my 5-0 prediction but a fine win.Seems to me we put in classier performances against better teams so I'm not too bothered who we play in the run up. I reckon we can do this !

Just remember lads the County are the only team in the Blue Square Bet Premier with their destiny in their OWN hands, in terms of winning the league.
