The goal came in the 12th minute as the unlikely goalscorer gave the away side the lead as Cheltenham hosted Newport.

King’s goal wasn’t enough to secure victory as the home side levelled late into injury time in the first half.

There were no goals in the second half as the game ended 1-1 which leave Newport lying in second position in League Two just one point behind Cambridge United.

Newport have two games in hand over the league leaders Cambridge.
