Newport County must learn quickly from defeat says Edinburgh



Paul Mullin completed the comeback with a late winner

Newport County manager Justin Edinburgh says his side must learn from mistakes quickly, after letting slip a two goal lead against Morecambe, at the Globe Arena. 

Goals from Adam Chapman and Aaron O’Connor gave the away side a 2-0 lead but a brace from Kevin Ellison and 84th minute winner from Paul Mullin secured a second win for Morecambe.

“We’ve got to learn and we’ve got to learn quickly,” said the 44-year-old manager, speaking to Wales Online.

“We have to dust ourselves down and the good thing is that we’ve got a game on Tuesday and a chance to put it right.

“They didn’t beat us today; we were in a commanding position and we beat ourselves and that’s the most disappointing thing.

“I’ll think about changes for the Mansfield game now.

“I’ve got players who are good enough to be in that side if they’re a fit and they have the chance to come in and take their opportunity.

“The first two league games have not been good enough and we need a response at Mansfield now.”

Newport, who were knocked out of the League Cup against Reading midweek, are now 21st in League Two after losing their first two games. The result leaves Morecambe top of the table on goal difference, winning both of their opening fixtures.
