The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

THIS felt like more than a win and three points for New­port County and Jimmy Dack.

A first victory in six and a win that keeps the Ex­iles in the top seven was cru­cial, but the wider im­pact of the re­sult could have a huge bear­ing on the rest of County’s sea­son. Dack is popular man – be­ing cheered by the sup­port­ers at full-time and hav­ing his name sung by the play­ers in the dress­ing room af­ter­wards shouldn’t go un­no­ticed by the New­port di­rec­tors af­ter a clas­sic smash and grab win.

Yan Klukowski, ‘League Two’s Frank Lampard’ ac­cord­ing to Dack got the goals that could seal the ap­point­ment. Given the show of sol­i­dar­ity be­tween play­ers, staff and fans at the end, it looks likely.
