Newport County 2 Woking 3
MAGNIFICENT Kevin Betsy had the league leaders looking like a bunch of plonkers as wonderful Woking tarred Newport’s unblemished Rodney Parade record.
The table-topping Exiles have been untouchable at home this season, racking up five wins and two draws from their opening seven games – conceding just two in a formidable start to their title push.
But their unbeaten record came to an unexpected end as the brilliant Betsy gave them a battering.
The veteran winger struck twice inside 16 minutes before Andy Sandell curled in for Newport bang on half time.
Bradley Bubb came off the bench to nab a precious third after 69 minutes.
But there was still time for more drama as Michael Flynn headed home in the 88th minute.
After hanging on to secure a rare away win, Betsy beamed: “It was a tremendous team performance.
“We were all disappointed with the performance and result last week but we dusted ourselves down and came out fighting.
“We are a good side on our day and we’ve got to put in these kinds of performances on a more consistent basis.
“If we cut out the errors and are more clinical when we are attacking then we can do OK in this division.
“In a few games we haven’t done ourselves justice and we’ve got to find that little bit of consistent form now.”
