FA Cup: League Two Newport County set up Manchester City clash

"We'd had no contact since before the game, but Lizzie told me there were two little girls and they were ideal and waiting for me to arrive at the hospital - and we've been here ever since".

He said: "Knowing how good Pep is I'm sure they'll overcome that pitch".

Newport were more than worthy of their win as they dominated from start to finish under torrential rain at Rodney Parade and on a mud bath of a pitch that City will not relish.

ROBBIE WILLMOTT and Padraig Amond were the toast of Newport after their goals helped League Two County stun Middlesbrough.

Tensions were understandably running high after around 500 Boro fans made the 540-round trip to South Wales, before watching their side collapse against the League Two outfit. It was men against boys.

"As soon as the whistle went, he ran up to me and said could he go". Day had missed the first match in Middlesbrough because his wife was expecting but decided - with his wife's blessing - to stay with Newport County for the replay.

But for Matt Doherty's stoppage-time equalizer, Shrewsbury would have knocked out the side that sit seventh in the Premier League when they first met in a 2-2.

Wolves took an early lead against third-tier Shrewsbury through Matt Doherty but then fell 2-1 behind before Doherty levelled just before the interval.

"We'll have to be prepared, and I might play nine at the back!"

"This is the most important [thing] but we have to look at the game and see it was not one of the best performances".
