Full-time: Lincoln 2 Newport 4
A disastrous defensive performance by Lincoln City aided Newport County's promotion charge as they stormed to a 4-2 win at Sincil Bank.
Justin Edinburgh's side were 3-0 up inside 40 minutes with two goals from Aaron O'Connor and a strike from Robbie Willmott putting them in command.
A goal by Vadaine Oliver just before half-time gave Lincoln hope but there was still enough time to allow Willmott to score his second.
Lincoln had nothing to lose after the break and made it 4-2 with 12 minutes left when Chris Bush, who had earlier hit the bar, smashed in from 12 yards.
