Newport frustrated a confident Wrexham who were in good form going into the match. On paper Wrexham were clear favourites but a struggling Newport side produced a gritty performance. Both sides are under new management; Wrexham under interim player manager Andy Morrell and Newport under Justin Edinburgh. Newport‘s best chance of the match was in the first minute when Craig McAllister fired straight at Mayebi from five yards out. Wrexham’s best chance fell to Jake Speight who fired wide when he was put through one on one.

The match was full of bookings for both sides as tackles flew in left, right and centre. Despite the draw Wrexham remained top of the league and are now two points ahead of big spenders Fleetwood Town. Newport stay in the relegation zone however things are looking much better at the Newport Stadium.
