Scott Boden's late header gave Newport County a valuable draw away against League Two play-off contenders Exeter.

Newport's Conor Wilkinson hit the post twice in a goalless first half, before Jordan Tillson met Lee Holmes' free-kick to put the hosts in front.

Boden equalised with five minutes left as he headed in from close range for his 12th goal of the season.

Exeter stay 13th in the table, while Newport are now seven points clear of the relegation zone.
