Stevenage 3 – 3 Newport County
County staged another comeback to level the match and return home with a point, a story reminiscent of last seasons exploits.
It took susbstitute Shawn McCoulsky to score in injury time to save County’s blushes after they had gone 3 – 1 down earlier in the match.
Frank Nouble had levelled the score in the 55th minute but Stevenage took the lead again with a penalty after Scot Bennett fouled Luke Wilkinson in the area.
Newport went further behind in the 72 minute when Danny Newton slotted home the ball after a failed shot by Dale Gorman.
Five minutes later Mickey Demetriou gave his team hope with a blistering shot into the top of the net.
It was left to replacement Shawn McCoulsky to get the equaliser, putting the ball away after a failed attempt to clear the ball.
