FA Cup: Newport County 3-0 Salford City - 10-man visitors lose in south Wales

Jamie Proctor, Padraig Amond and Saikou Janneh sent Newport County into another FA Cup third-round draw against 10-man Salford City at Rodney Parade.

Mickey Demetriou saw an early penalty saved after Kevin Berkoe handled in the box.

The contest came to life after the break as Salford had Brandon Thomas-Asante sent off for a dangerous challenge on Newport keeper Tom King.

Proctor headed in, Amond struck from the spot and Janneh ended the contest.

The former was able to celebrate his first goal for Michael Flynn's side since arriving on loan in October.

Amond substituted Proctor and doubled Newport's lead after Scott Twine was brought down in the penalty area.

The hosts also sent on veteran striker and the club's mental health ambassador Kevin Ellison, who, at 41 years of age, is 11 years older than Salford's existence in the FA Cup.

Newport County manager Michael Flynn:

"I thought by far we were the better team, we were excellent, it should have been 7-0, really.

"They didn't have a shot on target, even with 11 men.

"I'll be watching the draw on Monday, it is what it is, let's just hope we are at home.

"I hope it's a full sell-out [if fans are allowed to return], but I can't see it happening so it's going to be a frustrating one I think."

Watch the FA Cup third-round draw, BBC One Wales from 19:00 GMT on Monday, November 30.
