Newport, Barnet, Oldham produce classic FA Cup shocks

Newport, Barnet, Oldham produce classic FA Cup shocks

It seemed Newport's hopes of a famous victory had been dashed when the Foxes levelled eight minutes from time through Rachid Ghezzal. Denis Odoi put Fulham 1-0 up after 52 minutes but Oldham hit back through Sam Surridge's penalty before Aleksandar Mitrovic, on as a substitute, had a spot kick of his own saved.

Oldham came from behind to win 2-1 at Fulham, a new low for the team managed by Claudio Ranieri which is fighting relegation in the Premier League.

But, with five minutes left, Newport were awarded a penalty after Leicester's Marc Albrighton inexplicably raised his arm to block a cross into the box and Padraig Amond made no mistake from the spot to spark delirious scenes among the Welsh club's supporters.

Marcelo Bielsa's much-changed Leeds side once again fell in the third round after a 2-1 defeat away at Queens Park Rangers.
