ECSTATIC Newport County AFC fans have taken to social media to share their delight after yet more heroics in the FA Cup.

Hero Matty Dolan came off the bench to earn the Exiles a fourth-round replay at home on Tuesday February 5, following a dramatic injury-time equaliser away at Middlesbrough.

More than 1,200 County fans were jumping for joy at the Riverside Stadium following the 25-year-old midfielder’s sensational goal.

Social media was ablaze over the weekend with elated Exiles.

In reference to the streets were the respective managers grew up in Pill, die-hard County Chris Shingler wrote: “Dolphin St 1 Baldwin St 1 replay down the YM Tuesday week. Totally deserved!! Up the County.”

Paul Molesworth said: “That last minute equaliser made it feel like more of a win.

“Regardless of the outcome of the replay may be, it's already a win-win situation now for us.

“Hopefully it'll be on TV and then we'll have a big chance to show the watching public what we're capable of achieving once again!

“It's also important to keep momentum going in the league now and push back up towards the top seven.

“Especially here at Rodney Parade where we've shown that we can beat anyone on our day.

“Exciting times indeed and remember how far we've come in the last two seasons! These last-minute goals eh?”

Neil Williams added: “Well I think a few in our street knew something good happened when that goal went in.”

Ronnie Hotdogs wrote on the Argus website: "Amazing result. This squad doesn't know when it's beaten. Great stuff again. Congrats to all players, management and staff. UTC.”

Daniel Ayala’s header six minutes into the second half looked like earning Championship challengers Middlesbrough – who are hotly tipped at 3/1 to be promoted to the Premier League – victory over the League Two side.

But former Boro player Dolan’s late intervention – in the fourth and final minute of time added on – ensured that there will be a sequel to the battle of Pill between County manager Michael Flynn and his counterpart Tony Pulis after the 1-1 draw.

Both Newport-born bosses went to city’s St Joseph’s Roman Catholic High School. After shocking 2016 Premier League champions Leicester City in the third round at Rodney Parade early this month, the visitors were full value for their draw after a gutsy performance in the North East.

They gave the Teesside crowd a scare in the first half and refused to give up after Ayala broke the deadlock.

They fought until the end and were rewarded at the death to earn a deserved replay at Rodney Parade next month.
