Whitecroft & Barton 2 – 2 Newport

Newport and W&B played out a 2-2 draw at East Cowes Vics on Tuesday night in a hastily arranged replacement for Saturdays called off match.

Newport opened with 5 changes from the side that started against Portsmouth last Tuesday. One of those changes Emerson Tattersall opened the scoring latching on to an underhit back pass in the W&B defence.

W&B equalised with an excellent strike inside the box from former Newport frontman Matt Evans.

Whitecroft and Barton again equalised through Matt Evans as he raced away from the Port defence and cleverly flicked the ball over the advancing Gary Streeter.
