Tyreeq Bakinson struck the only goal as Newport won 1-0 at Oldham to move level on points with Lincoln at the top of Sky Bet League Two.
Midfielder Bakinson broke the deadlock in the 69th minute at Boundary Park and that was enough to secure Newport their fifth league win of the season.
Harry Kewell's first league game in charge of Notts County ended in another defeat for the Magpies as they lost 5-1 at Exeter to stay rock bottom with a solitary point.
Pierce Sweeney, one from the penalty spot, and Jayden Stockley both scored in either half, with the former missing another spot-kick in the second period.
Enzio Boldewijn scored for the visitors just before the interval, while Aaron Martin headed a fifth in stoppage time for Exeter, who climbed up to third.
Lincoln's 100 per cent home record was halted as they slipped to their first league defeat, going down 1-0 to Crawley.
Michael Bostwick's own goal gave the Reds the lead on the stroke of half-time and the Imps were reduced to 10 men early in the second period after Lee Frecklington was shown a straight red card for his challenge on Mark Connolly.
Carlisle are also on the rise, moving fourth after registering their fourth league win in five with a 2-1 victory at Cambridge.
