FA CUP hero Padraig Amond described his goal against Tottenham Hotspur as “the most amazing feeling in the world” and he’s hoping to carry on his scoring form at Lincoln City tomorrow night.

Amond’s first-half header was so nearly enough to give Newport County AFC a famous victory in Saturday’s fourth round clash in front of nearly 10,000 fans at Rodney Parade.

But England star Harry Kane ensured that Spurs escaped with a draw and earned a Wembley replay, which is set to take place on February 7.

After recovering from the disappointment of being denied an historic victory over the Premier League giants, Amond said: “It's the most amazing feeling in the world [scoring], if you could bottle it and sell it you'd be a millionaire.

"You come into the game dreaming of doing something like that.

"When the ball came in it was a great cross and I stuck my head on it and was obviously delighted that the ball hit the back of the net.

"It would have been a lot nicer if it was the winning goal – it's disappointing we drew the game, but if someone had offered us before the game that result we would have taken it straight away.

"There was 10,000 fans here, so when people score in front of 70-80,000 I don't know what that's like but that's an unbelievable moment for me and it's one I'll never forget.”

South Wales Argus:

Amond says the Exiles will fancy their chances at Wembley.

“We could have won [on Saturday] so why not?” said the 29-year-old Irishman.

“No one gave us a chance and we believed inside we could win the game or get something from the game.

“We'll give it our best shot – it's a free shot again like [Saturday] was – no one expects us to do anything so let's prove them wrong.”

But before Wembley it’s a return to League Two action at Sincil Bank tomorrow and at Colchester’s Weston Homes Community Stadium on Saturday.

“The club has come a long way in a short space of time,” added Amond.

“This time last year I played against them for Hartlepool and we looked like we were safe and Newport were dead and buried.

“But they put in a fantastic effort towards the end of the season, stayed up and the club has gone from strength to strength.”

County are ninth in the table after Saturday’s league matches, a point below the play-off positions and a point above 10th-placed Lincoln.
