Stockport inflict first league defeat on Newport boss Graham Coughlan
Newport goalkeeper Joe Day was beaten all ends up by a free-kick from Chris Hussey that looked to be a cross from the right flank.
And Dave Challinor’s men secured all three points when Paddy Madden, the League Two player of the month for October, continued his excellent form with a tap-in from close range from Macauley Southam-Hales’ cross 16 minutes from time.
Madden saw a header tipped onto the bar late on as Stockport pushed for a third goal.
