Justin Edinburgh hails Exiles comeback

Newport County manager Justin Edinburgh hailed his players' spirit after they came back from two goals down to beat Northwich Victoria 3-2 in the FA Trophy quarter-finals.

The Exiles were chasing the game after Ian Kearney and Ryan Wade put the Northern Premier League outfit two goals clear.

However, after a few stern words at the break, County rallied in the second half and pulled off the win thanks to Jake Harris' brace and Nat Jarvis' late winner.

"Every game is so important and this victory is a morale-boosting one," Edinburgh told Wales Online.

"If they're honest, they'll admit they let each other down in the first half.

"Not only themselves, but our magnificent support too.

"I didn't think the first half performance was acceptable, so asked a few questions of to which I got some honest answers in the second half.

"There's no better feeling than when Nat (Jarvis) scores late on.

"It was a reward for the players' attitude and commitment, rather than for good play.

"Maybe that shows what spirit there is in this group, which I hope can take us all the way to the final as well as preserving our status in the Blue Square Bet Premier.

"We'll try to apply ourselves in the same way for every match."
