NEWPORT will have to return to Ascot on Tuesday night after drawing 2-2 today (Saturday) in the fifth round of the FA Vase.

Newport were ahead twice with goals from Jon Holmes and Tom McInnes but were pegged back twice by Ascot, who had their player-manager sent off in the 38th minute. Their equaliser came in the sixth minute of injury time to force a period of extra time though neither side could find a winner.

Meanwhile in the Sydenhams Wessex League Division 1, there was a shock 2-0 defeat for leaders Cowes Sports against second-placed Brockenhurst, while East Cowes Vics ran riot against Stockbridge, winning 9-0.

Goals were scored by Josh Appell, three, Tom Scovell, two, Joe Adams, Matt Evans and Jake Younie, two.
