Notts County remain bottom of League Two after an excellent Newport County display saw them win 4-1 and secure a first away victory since September.

The Exiles, who held Premier League leaders Man City for 45 minutes in Saturday's 4-1 FA Cup defeat, had no issues against struggling Notts County.

Fraser Franks and a Jamille Matt double put Newport 3-1 ahead at the interval despite Kane Hemmings' early equaliser.

Padraig Amond's goal just after half-time gave the Exiles breathing space.

Newport stay 15th but are now level on points with four sides above them on goal difference.

Newport County manager Mike Flynn said: "I was more worried about tonight that I was for Saturday (against Manchester City), if I am totally honest.

"I knew we had to get back to winning ways in the league, away from home and we have done that. We have gone from playing against the highest team in the country to the bottom side."
