Fourth victory of season

Rugby Town pulled two points clear of the drop zone after beating Newcastle Town 2-1 at Butlin Road, thanks to a third minute Callum Powell effort and a Kevin Thornton spot-kick on 32 minutes.

Valley now have 16 points from their 16 games in NPL Division One South, with four wins and four draws.

Dale Belford’s men will be hoping to build on this in their next game, a trip to Goole AFC on Saturday.
