Crucial to the result was Carlow man Padraig Amond. Robbie Willmott had given the club the lead just after half-time before Amond finished a clever training ground corner move. A sweeping ball across the box sat up for the striker who did not hesitate in lashing the ball into the roof of the net.

It was a deserved victory for a team who were well on top throughout. Despite dreadful conditions and a deteriorating pitch, they comfortably controlled the game. The result is a massive one for Newport as it sets up a blockbuster fifth-round tie against Premier League champions Manchester City.

The is a home game and it will be televised live.
