West Ham were without several injured first-choice players and an upset always looked on the cards.

There are 72 places separating the sides but it was the League Two side who took a deserved lead on the 38th minute when Amond headed home from close range at the back post from Scott Bennett's delightful cross. The England star stepped up to take it but his effort flew a yard over the bar which hardly troubled Day.

Newport showed their intent from the opening moments as Eric Dier was put under pressure and lost the ball to Joss Labadie, whose cross was blazed wildly over by the unmarked Frank Nouble when he should have given the Welsh side the lead. Subs: Son Heung-min 7, Alli 7, Davies 5.

Their pressure finally paid off in the 82nd minute when Heung-Min Son expertly used the outside of his boot to flick a corner on to an unmarked Kane at the back post, and this time the England worldwide made no mistake, bringing the score to 1-1 and earning his side another chance at qualifying for the fifth round of the FA Cup.

They could feasibly have gone in at half-time leading by more than one goal and although Spurs dominated the second period, goalkeeper Day only had one save to make, denying Son before Kane's leveller.

The Newport captain was touch and go to even play at Rodney Parade after recent injury, but I bet boss Mike Flynn was glad he was passed fit after an impressive display in midfield. You can't say they don't deserve it - they have been the better side in the first half.

Amond was nearly at the double four minutes later, pouncing on a poor clearance before drawing a fine save from Vorm from a tight angle.

"I'm gutted for them that Spurs scored so late, but they've made me the proudest manager in the country right now". "For me, sometimes I miss personally this kind of atmosphere and football".

In a letter Wednesday, the Justice Department warned the House Intelligence Committee's Republican chairman, California Rep. Devin Nunes, that releasing the classified memo to the public could be "extraordinarily reckless" and asked to review it.

With Mousa Sissoko, Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama all struggling to get hold of the ball in the midfield, Pochettino's tactics looked a jumble - and Newport were in the mood to capitalise on any weakness. We had to get focussed, it was the only mistake we made all day and we got punished for it. But it's about in the next few days to see if we have some possibilities with some players. "I hope we have learned today that we have to fight to win things".
