NEW­PORT reached the fourth round for the first time in their his­tory with another bril­liant gi­ant- killing.

The League Two side, who have carved out a rep­u­ta­tion for knock­ing out big teams in the FA Cup over the last few years, stunned Wat­ford with two goals in­side the open­ing half an hour.

Tris­tan Abra­hams put them in front from an 18th- minute penalty – given for a foul on Bran­don Cooper by Toby Steven­son – be­fore Joss Labadie pro­duced a su­perb sec­ond into the


top cor­ner 10 min­utes later. Cham­pi­onship side Wat­ford brought them­selves back into it with a 54th- minute penalty of their own, put away by Ad Adal­berto P Pe­naranda. But Padraig A Amond, left, s sealed the suc suc­cess – and a home tie against More­cambe or New­cas­tle – with a low drive af­ter 65 min­utes. Wat­ford had Stipe Per­ica sent off two min­utes from time for vi­o­lent con­duct against Cooper.
