“We couldn’t, could we?” wrote Michael Flynn, Newport County’s manager, in the match programme. No, ultimately, was the answer but Newport gave it one hell of a go on a day that will live long in the memory for every one of their supporters, in particular that moment when Pádraig Amond pulled a goal back with two minutes remaining and the League Two club dared to dream.
It was 2-1 at that point and there was a flicker of hope that disappeared just as quickly as it arrived. Phil Foden, who was the standout player on a pudding of a pitch, scored the second of his two goals in the 89th minute with a splendid left-footed shot and it was then left to Riyad Mahrez to add a fourth deep in injury time.
