Newport Pagnell Town’s torrid run of form came to a welcome end on Tuesday night with a 5-3 win over Northampton Sileby Rangers.
The win signalled an end to a seven game losing streak, the most recent of which came on Saturday against Holbeach United as they lost 2-1.
Dave Baker gave Newport the lead after two minutes with Josh Crawley adding a second on the quarter hour.
A Dom Lawless double after 25 and 40 minutes extended the interval advantage to four.
Darryl Smith sealed Newport’s success with a 64th minute goal.
Stuart McMichael reduced the arrears within a minute.
The visitors kept going and made the scoreline more respectable with two late goals.
Lance Allen scored the Sileby second after 84 minutes with McMichael scoring his second of the night a minute from time.
On Saturday, Holbeach took the lead on the quarter hour when Lee Beeson’s corner was headed back across goal by Ben Brown for Jack Smith to head in.
Brown close range header after Swans keeper Josh McAdoo saved from Charley Sanders saw Holbeach extend their advantage after 33 minutes.
Smith replied for Newport early in the second half with a cracking shot, his first goal for the club.
But despite pressure in the second half, Newport couldn’t find a breakthrough and slumped to another defeat.
Olney Town lost 3-0 to Bourne on Saturday.
Olney Town Reserves have parted company with manager David Ashcroft despite being top of the league.
Ashcroft’s last victory at the helm came on Saturday against Bourne Town Reserves, with goals from Marlon Perrin, Craig Ralph and Joseph Lee easing Town to a 3-1 win.
Speaking after his departure, Ashcroft said: “I would like to pass my thanks on to all the players, committee and supporters. All good things have come to an end.”
Ian Lindop will take over until the end of the season.
