Newport knock Leicester out of FA Cup in magic third round moment

Jamie Vardy

Newport County's FA Cup hero Padraig Amond admits he was wary of former teammate Danny Ward as he faced the Leicester City keeper from 12 yards.

Newport had led for the majority of the game following Jamille Matt's towering early header, but Rachid Ghezzal had struck a spectacular equaliser for the away side eight minutes from the end.

Humble Welsh club Newport had led from the 10th minute but their dream appeared to have been snatched away when Rachid Ghezzal smashed in a late equaliser, only for Padraig Amond to send the Rodney Parade faithful insane with a penalty victor.

However, moments later a penalty was awarded to Newport when the ball struck Marc Albrighton's arm, which was converted by Padraig Amond in the 85th minute.

There was no so-called "giant-killing" at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium, though, with the Premier League champions sweeping aside second-tier Rotherham in a 7-0 win in Pep Guardiola's biggest victory in charge of the club. Elsewhere, QPR ended a 22-year wait to win an FA Cup tie at the first time of asking as they beat Championship leaders Leeds United, while Sheffield United went down at home to National League side Barnet.

"Everyone's done brilliantly today and I think we fully deserved it". It is one you have to savour.

On another day of surprises following Cardiff, Huddersfield and Ipswich's exits to lower league opposition on Saturday, Barnet beat Sheffield United at Bramall Lane thanks to Shaquile Coulthirst's penalty on 21 minutes. "I am the most proud man in Oldham, I can't believe it".

The Foxes headed for Rodney Parade off the back of a strong run of form in the Premier League over the Christmas period, but rarely looked like getting the better of the fourth tier side in a thoroughly disappointing display.

Having teed up City's victor against Liverpool on Thursday, Raheem Sterling came to the fore again at the Etihad Stadium, opening the scoring 12 minutes into Sunday's contest.
