Newport County fell to a first League Two home defeat since March as two second-half goals gave Colchester United victory at Rodney Parade.Former Newport player Ryan Jackson put the visitors ahead after 72 minutes.Four minutes later French striker Mikael Mandron touched home a Sean Murray free-kick for the second.

Newport substitute Shawn McCoulsky glanced in with four minutes to go but the hosts lost their 10-match unbeaten home run in League Two.The result, which coincided with manager Michael Flynn’s 37th birthday, keeps the Exiles sixth in the table.Colchester, meanwhile, climb up to 14th place.Newport County manager Michael Flynn told BBC Sport Wales: “If losing our unbeaten league run at home was always going to happen on a day, it was going to happen on my birthday!”Let’s not dress it up. It’s done now, the monkey is off the back and now we have to make sure we go on another long run and that starts on Saturday.”Newport lost captain Joss Labadie with a hamstring injury after 14 minutes. Flynn said: “It obviously does not look good at the moment. “We will find out more on Thursday when it settles down and it stops bleeding. He is a big miss because we missed him as soon as he went off.”Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsNewport1Day6White17Bennett28Demetriou2PipeSubstituted forMcCoulskyat 76’minutes4LabadieSubstituted forRiggat 15’minutes8DolanSubstituted forReynoldsat 78’minutes12Tozer3Butler9Amond10NoubleSubstitutes11Reynolds15McCoulsky20Owen-Evans25O’Brien27Rigg29Quigley30BittnerColchester1Walker6Kent18Eastman26Inniss2Jackson8LoftSubstituted forLapslieat 45’minutes14Comley16Murray22Vincent-YoungSubstituted forKinsellaat 35’minutesBooked at 85mins21HanlanSubstituted forOdelusiat 85’minutes19MandronSubstitutes3Kinsella4Lapslie15Kabamba17Reid24Slater27Odelusi29GilmartinReferee:Darren EnglandAttendance:2,704Match StatsHome TeamNewportAway TeamColchesterPossessionHome53%Away47%ShotsHome17Away12Shots on TargetHome3Away5CornersHome13Away3FoulsHome10Away8Live TextPosted at Match ends, Newport County 1, Colchester United 2.Full TimePosted at 90’+5′ Second Half ends, Newport County 1, Colchester United 2.Posted at 90’+4′ Corner, Colchester United.
