Mansfield Town 1-0 Newport County

Taylor Maloney of Newport County and Harry Charsley of Mansfield Town
Newport and Mansfield had drawn 2-2 at Rodney Parade in August

Danny Rose's first half goal was enough for Mansfield to beat Newport in a scrappy game played in difficult conditions.

Rose scored his 11th goal of the season following Mickey Demetriou's mistake

Injury-hit Newport had few chances with Dale Gorman's effort as close as they came.

County are down to 16th and 12 points off the play-offs while Mansfield are 20th after ending a four match winless run.

Newport County manager Michael Flynn said: "The conditions were tough but it was the same for both teams.

"In the first half we played some really nice football and we've lost the game to an error. Danny Rose gets a free shot and it's killed us.

"That group of players worked their socks off for us. They put in a shift."
