County 1 Mansfield 1
NEWPORT County AFC had to settle for a point after a war of attrition against Mansfield Town at Rodney Parade.
A match low on entertainment but high on incident ended 1-1 in goals and red cards and one point apiece.
Chris Zebroski headed the Exiles in front after 30 minutes but Sam Clucas cancelled that out on 67 minutes with a near identical goal.
Lee Minshull was then sent off for an elbow on Martin Riley with 15 minutes to go and Matt Rhead picked up a second yellow on 80 minutes for a foul on Harry Worley.
A point was a fair result in the end and maintains County's unbeaten start to the season at home.
