The Bafana Bafana star came on in the 71st minute with Brighton a goal down, but he made impressive debut with few attempts on goals and also tried to create opportunities for his teammates.

Solly March looked to have sealed the winner for Brighton when he scored a 90th minute, but Newport found the equaliser through an own goal by Brighton defender Adam Webster in referee’s optional time.

Brighton’s goalkeeper Jason Steele missed a cross and the ball deflected off the legs of Webster into the net to force the game into extra time.

Brighton penalty kickers held their nerves during the penalty shootout and managed to win the game 4-3 to go through to the next round of the FA Cup.
