In front of a record Willen Road attendance of 764 Sunderland RCA had the best of a lively first half as their quick passing and desire to close their opponents down put the hosts under pressure. The Swans were off the pace and looked lacklustre and when Colin Larkin opened the scoring, driving the ball back across the area to find the back of the net, it looked as if the Swans would be in for a long afternoon. Sunderland controlled the midfield and James Cassidy proved to be a continual nuisance as he time and time again ran at the Newport defence. Sunderland’s second goal came courtesy of Stephen Callen who hit a hard-low shot past keeper Mark Osborn, giving the visitors total control of the game that their play deserved. The Swan’s rallied late in the half with first Dom Lawless and then Greg Ling coming close for the home side.

In a pulsating second period Newport came out full of running and as Sunderland sat deeper looking to punish the Swans on the break, keeper Osborn pulled off two magnificent saves from John Butler that kept his side in the game. A two-minute period midway through the second half proved to be the pivotal moments of the match when the influential Larkin, who had controlled the midfield was substituted and Liam Smyth introduced for the Swans. Smyth assumed the role that Larkin had vacated as the hosts changed formation from four at the back to three and the balance of play swung in Newport’s favour.

Darryl Smith put in a scintillating performance, thundering home Newport’s first goal to give them hope. Sunderland were now on the back foot as Newport put them under intense pressure, however, the visitors valiantly threw their bodies on the line blocking shot after shot. Newport left it late but the weight of pressure eventually told as Adam Pryke glanced his header to dramatically equalise at the death.

Sunderland’s energy appeared to be spent as the match moved into extra time. The game was settled in the first period when Lawless broke free to confidently slot the ball under the advancing Jonathon Carmichael. Both sides continued to push forward without creating any more realistic goal chances, Newport held out to progress the Quarter Finals of The Buildbase FA Vase.
