Newport County 3 : 1 York City - Penn sees red as York crumble

Posted Sunday, October 12, 2014 by PA

Newport County had to come from behind to beat 10-man York City 3-1 at Rodney Parade.

On-loan Sheffield United forward Diego de Girolamo put York in front with a goal on his debut inside the first 10 minutes.

But second-half goals from Andrew Hughes, Chris Zebroski and Darren Jones rescued County, after Russ Penn had been sent off for the visitors.

Italy under 19 international de Girolamo took advantage of sloppy defending to put York in front with a deflected shot from the edge of the box.

County struggled until York captain Penn was sent off for a second bookable offence after a lunge on Lee Minshull early in the second half and his side was punished when Hughes pull level with a low drive five minutes later.

Marvin McCoy's gifted the home team a second when his back-pass was picked up by Zebroski, who rounded replacement goalkeeper Jason Mooney.

County skipper Jones sealed the win after 72 minutes with a stunning strike into the top corner from 25 yards.
