Match ends, Newport County 2, Northampton Town 2.
Newport County 2-2 Northampton Town
Newport County earned a battling point after falling two goals behind against visitors Northampton Town.
Sam Hoskins put the visitors ahead when he pounced on a rebound off County goalkeeper Joe Day.
Marc Richards doubled the Cobblers' lead after Nicky Adams laid off a free-kick, but County replied immediately when Scott Barrow fired home a loose ball from just outside the area.
Lenell John-Lewis then found the bottom corner to seal Newport's comeback.
Newport manager John Sheridan told BBC Radio Wales: "The players know their jobs and what they're doing, and they're just giving me 100% each game, you could see that.
"A couple of weeks ago they probably would have lost that game after going 2-0 down.
"The goals are our fault, it's not good play from Northampton it's just silly errors... but I'd rather talk about the response I got from them."
Northampton boss Chris Wilder tells BBC Radio Northampton:
"I'm proud of the players the supporters after what has gone on this week.
"It was a cagey game that could have gone either way. The main event is the survival of the football club. We hope that the right decision is made."
