Newport County 3-1 York City

York City's Russell Penn was sent off just 25 seconds into the second half against Newport County

Newport County came from behind to beat 10-man York City at Rodney Parade in League Two.

On-loan striker Diego De Girolamo's low finish fired the Minstermen in front early on, before Russell Penn saw red for a second bookable offence.

Andrew Hughes' low drive brought County level and Chris Zebroski latched onto a poor back-pass to put Newport ahead.

Centre-back Darren Jones hit a spectacular long range half-volley into the top corner to seal the win.

Newport moved up to 13th in the table, six points ahead of York, who drop to 22nd, above the relegation zone on goal difference.
