It was FA Cup replay night and once again we got to see an upset thanks to League Two Newport County against Championship side Middlesbrough.
Robbie Willmott put the Amber Army in front just after the break when he fired home his effort – despite the keeper just about getting a touch – to make it 1-0 before Padraig Amond sealed the victory who was given too much space from a corner and hit the ball right into the top right corner.

It means Newport County has set up an FA Cup Fifth Round clash with current Premier League holders Manchester City, a tie that will be shown live on BT Sport 2 on Saturday the 16th of February at 5:30pm.
Others to have won tonight were Brentford who beat last remaining non league side Barnet 3-1, goals coming from Canos, Jeanvier and Maupay. Tutonda got a consolation for his side who will go out with their heads held high.
Queens Park Rangers avoided an upset by beating League One high flyers Portsmouth 2-0, Wells and Smith the scorers.
Wolves however did get quite a scare after finding themselves 2-1 down at one point to Shrewsbury. Doherty put Nuno’s side in front after two minutes before Bolton and Laurent put Salop in the lead. That man again though Matt Doherty, found the net to make it 2-2 going into the break. Halfway through the second half, Cavalerio made it 3-2, which went on to be the final result.
In the next round then, Wolves will travel to Bristol City (live on BT Sport), Brentford head to Swansea (on BBC Wales) and QPR host Watford (on BT Sport).
Following the shock upset by League Two Newport County over Middlesbrough, fans took to praise Michael Flynn’s side, others vented their anger at Tony Pulis and Boro – take a look at those tweets on the next page.
