Match ends, Newport County 1, Morecambe 1.
Kevin Ellison rescued a point for Morecambe to ease their League Two relegation worries.
Newport had led through Padraig Amond's first-minute strike, the Irish striker heading his sixth goal of the season.
Antoine Semenyo's header almost doubled the hosts' lead, only to be denied by Morecambe goalkeeper Barry Roche.
Morecambe pushed for an equaliser and only Robbie Willmott's block denied Rhys Oates, but Jason Oswell then set up substitute Ellison to grab a point.
Newport manager Mike Flynn told BBC Radio Wales: "It's two points dropped today, let's not dress it up.
"We should have been out of sight but then a little bit of sloppiness allows Kev [Ellison] to get his annual goal against us.
"It's frustrating because we missed too many chances. We should have buried them and there's only one team who should have won that."
