Newport County dump Leicester out of FA Cup

2:10                                            Highlights of the Sky Bet League Two match between Stevenage and Newport

Claude Puel insists Leicester City can make no excuses after they suffered a humbling defeat to Newport County in the FA Cup third round.

Leicester's Rachid Ghezzal equalised after Jamille Matt's opener before Michael Flynn's men scored an 85th-minute victor through a Padraig Amond penalty after Marc Albrighton's handball.

Denis Odoi had given Fulham the lead before Sam Surridge pulled Oldham level but Fulham were left to rue Aleksandar Mitrovic's missed penalty at 1-1, as Callum Lang scored an 89th-minute victor to send Oldham into the fourth round.

Padraig Amond's 85th minute penalty fired Newport into the fourth round of the FA Cup, with the final score at Rodney Parade 2-1 to the Welsh side.

De Bruyne played in Sterling for a 12th-minute opener and City then scored twice in the closing stages of the first half.Phil Foden, the England Under-21 global, got on the end of a cross from Ilkay Gundogan in the 43rd minute before Rotherham defender Semi Ajayi turned the ball into his own net.

Remarkably, both Oldham and Barnet have caretaker managers - Pete Wild and Darren Currie - who were taking charge of their respective teams for only the third time.

City fielded a strong team, as manager Pep Guardiola chased his first FA Cup - the only domestic cup the Spaniard hasn't won while coaching Manchester.

Oldham came from behind to win 2-1 at Fulham, a new low for the team managed by Claudio Ranieri which is fighting relegation in the Premier League.

Sam Surridge equalised with a penalty but Fulham missed a spot kick through Aleksandar Mitrovic, who was brought on as a substitute to take the kick, before Callum Lang snatched the victor two minutes from time.

Daniel Iversen compounded Fulham's misery by saving an Aleksandar Mitrovic penalty - his first touch after coming off the bench - just moments earlier.

Elsewhere, Barnet beat Championship high-flyers Sheffield United thanks to Shaquile Coulthirst´s 21st-minute penalty.

"It's unbelievable", Barnet captain Callum Reynolds said after the north London club's triumph. We couldn't beat Stevenage last weekend and they had 10 men for an hour.

Goals from Will Hughes and Troy Deeney earned the Premier League side a spot in the fourth round.

Despite the surprise cup exit, Puel also revealed there were no plans for the Foxes to strengthen in the current transfer window, and urged his side to refocus for their Premier League game against Southampton.

Liverpool will complete a third round that started with Tottenham's 7-0 thrashing of Tranmere on Friday when they face top-flight rivals Wolves on Monday.
