Highlights: Grimsby Town 1-1 Newport County

A second half penalty from Padraig Amond earned Newport a replay.

Grimsby took the lead when Liam Gibson's cross was headed home by Luke Waterfall whose effort deceived Newport goalkeeper Tom King.

The Exiles threw everything at Grimsby in the second half and an Amond header struck the base of the post.

County drew level when Jake Hessenthaler fouled Mark O'Brien in the box and Amond scored the penalty as the two sides settled for a draw.

Newport County manager Michael Flynn told BBC Sport Wales:

"We should have put the game to bed. We didn't have enough cutting edge in either half.

"We gave away a sloppy goal and but for sloppy finishing and sloppy final balls we should have had a hat full of goals today.

"I started thinking it wasn't our day again, but we should have won the game, we were by far the better team.

"We conceded a real schoolboy goal and I am not happy about that."
