Newport vs Port Vale
Sky Bet League Two
3:00pm Saturday 7th September
Jamille Matt came from the bench and believed to make a victory over Port Vale to Newport.
The close-range target of matt usually means the Exiles are unbeaten in League 2 and two points behind leaders Exeter.
Vale could count themselves fortunate to have 11 men going in at half-time after James Gibbons slid into Robbie Willmott with a late, full-blooded challenge and endured some heavy first-half pressure.
Corey Whitely and matt were introduced from the bench and combined to split the breakthrough.
Before crossing the ball across the box to Matt to score his first of the year, whitely surged down the right wing, leaving Adam Crookes in his wake.
Padraig Amond saw his penalty saved by Scott Brown, diving although the Exiles striker was then dragged down into the box with Vale captain Leon Legge.
Legge hit the bar with a header in additional time however Newport saw the game to keep their unbeaten start to the year out.
