Newport County struck twice in the final six minutes to complete a remarkable comeback to beat Gateshead.

The home side's goals came either side of half-time, Liam Hatch grabbing the first from a corner before Jon Shaw fired home from the edge of the area.

Elliott Buchanan's fine finish started the County fightback and Sam Foley equalised in the 90th minute.

Gateshead's Jamie Chandler was then sent off before Jake Harris's superb 94th-minute strike clinched victory.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOMS

Newport manager Justin Edinburgh told BBC Radio Wales:

"I thought we showed immense strength and desire and character. It's shows we're building here now and [I'm] absolutely delighted.

"Credit to my players, because of the position we're in, it could have been easy to lay down and crumble.

"Young Jake Harris seems like he's having a knack of getting some good goals."
