Tristan Abrahams came off the bench to earn Newport County a draw against Crawley Town with his first touch.

The striker took on the responsibility of a penalty after Crawley's Jordan Tunnicliffe had fouled Robbie Willmott.

Crawley had led through their own spot kick, Ashley Nathaniel-George converting after Dan McNamara was penalised for handball.

Abrahams almost grabbed a late winner for the hosts, but saw his stoppage-time effort strike the post.
