Newport 3-2 Argyle

A SECOND-HALF fightback from Newport broke Argyle resistance in South Wales, as we let a two-goal lead slip in the Youth Alliance.

The Pilgrims were excellent in the first period and deservedly went ahead when Tom Purrington nodded in a corner from Harry Hodges. The lead was doubled by recent recruit Andrew Burn rising for a terrific bullet header.

Newport, to their credit, were a different side after the break and struck back with three goals to pinch the points from the Pilgrims.
