Southend United 0-2 Newport County

Shawn McCoulsky's brace gave League Two Newport County a shock EFL Cup first round win over League One side Southend United.

The summer loan signing from Bristol City's goals came in six second-half minutes.

They will be in Thursday's second round draw for the first time since 2013.

Southend's defeat came after they shocked League One favourites Blackburn 2-1 in their season opener last weekend.
