Wrexham 1-0 Newport County | March 2011

Andy Mangan's solo strike was enough to keep Wrexham in fourth place in the National League and strengthened their play-off hopes after a pulsating Welsh derby at the Racecourse (March 2011).

Mangan struck 16 minutes from time, reacting first to a quickly-taken throw-in and rattling home his 11th goal of the season in off the bar.

Andy Morrell came close for Wrexham in the first half, heading Neil Ashton's free-kick straight at Glyn Thompson.

Jamie Collins had Newport's best chance but blasted over from seven yards.
