Grimsby and Newport to go again after FA Cup draw

Grimsby and Newport will face each other again in a replay after their FA Cup first Round tie at Blundell Park finished 1-1.

Luke Waterfall opened the scoring for the home side, stooping low to head past Wales international Tom King shortly before the break.

With 10 minutes to play, former Grimsby striker Padraig Amond came off the bench to score from the penalty spot on his old stomping ground – after a foul from Jake Hessenthaler.

With a place in the second round at stake, it was a cagey start between two sides who enjoyed cup adventures last season.

Jamille Matt, playing against his former loan club, headed one straight at Sam Russell, while Grimsby took aim through Jordan Cook.

Waterfall then broke the deadlock, minutes before the interval, forcing a header beneath King after latching on to a superb cross from Liam Gibson.

Newport pushed for a response upon the restart, with Amond hitting the post with a header, before making his mark from 12 yards.
