Newport County 1-2 Cambridge Utd- Match Report

Cambridge fight back to secure their first league win of the season at Newport

Cambridge completed a late turnaround to claim their first league victory of the season with a 2-1 triumph at Newport.

Warren Feeney's side were in complete control after Rhys Healey put them ahead in the 10th minute.

But substitute Uche Ikpeazu sparked a comeback when he dived in to score after 61 minutes.

And Luke Berry made the most of confusion in the County box to scramble home the winner in the final 10 minutes.

Healey headed Newport in front on his full debut after 10 minutes

Cambridge failed to clear a long throw-in, and the on-loan Cardiff striker powered the ball past goalkeeper Will Norris.

Newport almost surrendered their lead after 30 minutes when Adam McGurk rattled the bar from a free-kick.

But Cambridge equalised after 61 minutes

Former Newport star Medy Elito swung a free-kick in from the right and substitute Ikpeazu headed home.

Another Elito free-kick caused confusion after 83 minutes and Berry acrobatically half-volleyed the ball into an empty net.
