Leeds suffer shock FA Cup exit at Newport

Leeds suffer shock FA Cup exit at Newport

A dramatic 89th-minute victor from Newport County's on-loan striker Shawn McCoulsky knocked out a complacent Leeds United and put the Welsh club into the fourth round of the FA Cup for the first time since 1979.

Unfortunately for the policeman, Leeds were eliminated during an entertaining third round tie against the Welsh League Two side.

But a Conor Shaugnessy own goal and substitute Shawn McCoulsky's towering header edged County into the fourth round for the first time since the 1978-79 season. Against Burnley (in the Carabao Cup) I also made 10 changes and they made a ideal performance, against Leicester the same and did very well, so why not?

"I would love Liverpool at Anfield: that would be the dream for me being a Liverpool fan", he said.

"Difficult pitch for them as well".

"The ground is sold out, the whole place is buzzing with Leeds coming to town, it's a big deal for us and we're confident".

"This is much better beating Championship teams like Leeds", said Newport manager Michael Flynn.

"But we have a replay to look forward to", he added.

Christiansen made nine changes, and admitted: 'I take the blame - always the manager takes the blame and I will do it also today.

"To have five, six days to prepare for this game because it's also a long travel we will have, but we are ready to go there and pass to the next round".

Infused with fresh belief in front of a passionate Welsh crowd, Newport pressed for a victor, and with a minute to go on-loan substitute McCoulsky rose highest at a corner to head in the decisive goal and send the stadium into raptures.

This came straight from the FA Cup's textbook of shocks.

'If it is right why he got the red card then it is a problem, but I believe that he didn't do it'.
