Result: Late penalty save seals Northampton Town win at Newport County

Northampton Town goalkeeper Matt Duke pulls off a late penalty save to secure his side a 2-1 win at Newport County in League Two.

Northampton Town goalkeeper Matt Duke pulled off a late penalty save to secure his side a shock win at Newport County on Saturday.

With the Cobblers leading 2-1, Lee Collins brought down David Pipe, but Andrew Sandell's low spot kick was brilliantly pushed around the post by former Hull City keeper Duke.

Northampton had earlier taken the lead on 29 minutes thanks to a debut goal from on-loan Everton forward Hallam Hope.

Newport equalised on the stroke of half time through a Harry Worley header, but the Cobblers struck what proved to be the winning goal just after the break when Darren Carter found the top corner from long range.

Northampton remain bottom of the League Two table, but they are now just one point from safety.
