Newport County 2-2 Stevenage- Match Report

Last updated : 15 August 2015
Hughes the saviour for StevenageMark Hughes' injury time goal rescued a point for Stevenage as they drew 2-2 at Newport.Second-half goals from Scott Boden and Aaron Collins looked to have given Terry Butcher his first win as Exiles boss but Hughes' 91st minute strike earned Teddy Sheringham's side a point.It came after Boro's 18-year-old striker Dipo Akinyemi had scored his first goal for the club in the first half.The visitors took the lead after 39 minutes when County defender Kieran Parselle misjudged a hopeful punt over the top and Akinyemi was able to nip in to score his first goal since turning professional in the summer.But County rallied after the half-time break and hit back on 58 minutes when Collins rose to head home a Scott Barrow cross from the left.Boden hit what looked like the winner 11 minutes from time with a shot from the edge of the box after excellent work from Collins.But Hughes bundled home an equaliser from close range to leave both managers searching for their first win
