Joss Labadie sent Newport County into the third round of the FA Cup after the midfielder scored twice to beat Cambridge United at Rodney Parade.The skipper struck within two minutes, turning in Matthew Dolan’s cross.Cambridge applied huge pressure on the hosts after the break and Uche Ikpeazu thought he had equalised, only for Ben White to clear his shot off the line.

But the Exiles held firm and, when Nouble crossed from the right, Labadie volleyed home superbly to seal victory.Relive Sunday’s FA Cup second round actionNewport’s only third-round appearance in the last 32 years was two seasons ago, when they were beaten by Blackburn Rovers.But Mike Flynn’s side can now look forward to the third-round draw, and a potential money-spinning tie against a Premier League club, which takes place live on BBC Two and online at 19:00 GMT on Monday.Newport County manager Mike Flynn told BBC Radio Wales:”I don’t ever tell the players to sit back and the first 10 minutes of the second half we were too deep for my liking.”As soon as they got that on board and started pushing up the pitch and made the right decisions, we could have scored a few more goals.”Being a Liverpool fan I’d have to say I’d like Liverpool but any of the big clubs, Manchester United, Arsenal, even somebody like Newcastle would be big for us – although I’m not sure I’d like to go to Man City at the moment if I’m totally honest!”I’m going to have to have my sensible head on and say that I’d rather be away because it would be worth so much more for the football club and that’s what’s more important to me.”Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsNewport1Day6White25O’Brien28Demetriou2Pipe4LabadieSubstituted forRiggat 84’minutes8DolanSubstituted forWillmottat 77’minutes12Tozer3Butler15McCoulskySubstituted forAmondat 64’minutes10NoubleBooked at 75minsSubstitutes7Willmott9Amond11Reynolds18Foulston20Owen-Evans27Rigg30BittnerCambridge1Forde2Halliday5Taylor6LeggeBooked at 43mins3Carroll20Brown16O’Neil21Elito11DunkSubstituted forAmooat 65’minutes14IbehreSubstituted forAzeezat 65’minutes9IkpeazuSubstitutes7Mingoia10Azeez12Taft13Mitov18Maris19Amoo22LewisReferee:Kevin JohnsonAttendance:2,748Match StatsHome TeamNewportAway TeamCambridgePossessionHome58%Away42%ShotsHome12Away18Shots on TargetHome3Away3CornersHome6Away7FoulsHome11Away12Live TextPosted at Match ends, Newport County 2, Cambridge United 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+5′ Second Half ends, Newport County 2, Cambridge United 0.Posted at 90’+4′ Attempt blocked.
