McCoulsky caps thrilling Newport fightback

Substitute Shawn McCoulsky marked his Newport debut with a dramatic last-gasp equaliser in a six-goal thriller.
Stevenage opened the scoring through Tom Pett and though Frank Nouble equalised, goals from Dale Gorman and Danny Newton looked to have earned Boro the points.
But Mickey Demetriou started the fightback and, in a frenetic finale, McCoulsky - on loan from Bristol City until January - turned in Matt Dolan's corner.
On 11 minutes Pett chased down defender Scot Bennett's short back-pass, skipped around keeper Joe Day and finished low into the unguarded net.
Ten minutes into the second half Newport drew level when Dolan's deep corner was bundled in from close range by former West Ham striker Nouble.
Bennett continued his day to forget, tripping Luke Wilkinson in the penalty area, and Gorman fired in from the penalty spot.
The points looked to have been made safe on 72 minutes when Gorman's long-range shot was deflected through to Newton, who volleyed beyond keeper Joe Day.
But five minutes later defender Demetriou rifled a spectacular 30-yard strike into the top corner, before McCoulsky pounced late on.
