Newport County stuns Leicester City in the third round of the FA Cup




Padraig Amond was the hero for Newport County on Sunday afternoon, as the League Two club shocked Leicester City in the third round of the FA Cup with a 2-1 win.

Jamille Matt gave the hosts the lead, before Rachid Ghezzal levelled with eight minute left on the clock.


A handball inside the box by Marc Albrighton gave Newport the chance to win it in the 85th minute, with 30-year-old Amond holding his nerve to score and record a massive upset against Leicester City.
