Newport boss Flynn reveals they toasted FA Cup win with WATER

Manager Michael Flynn and his Newport County team celebrated their giant-killing exploits with water after Padraig Amond outfoxed former team-mate Danny Ward from the penalty spot to earn a dramatic victory over Premier League Leicester City.

Jamille Matt's glancing header had given the Exiles the lead after 10 minutes but Leicester's Rachid Ghezzal rifled into the top corner on 82 minutes to level the score.

After Marc Albrighton was penalised for handball in the penalty area Amond converted from the spot, sending Ward the wrong way at a jubilant Rodney Parade.
