League Two Newport County have beaten Premier League side Leicester City in the third round of the FA Cup.

The Exiles got off to a great start when Jamille Matt headed in a cross from Robbie Willmott after just 10 minutes.

The Foxes levelled in the second half thanks to a goal from Rachid Ghezzal, however a handball from Mark Albrighton led to a penalty for the Welsh side.

Padraig Amond's 85th minute penalty fired Newport into the fourth round of the FA Cup, with the final score at Rodney Parade 2-1 to the Welsh side.
