Newport County's FA Cup clash against Manchester United has been halted after a medical emergency in the crowd at Rodney Parade.

The hosts had come from two goals down to level the scores in the second half of the fourth-round tie, before Antony's effort made it 3-2 with just over 20 minutes left. However, as the game reached its final moments, proceedings were brought to a halt when a fan in the crowd required medical attention.

The County medics raced over to attend to the affected person, with players from both sides remaining on the pitch while they received treatment.

Play resumed a short while later with the Manchester United medical staff offering to cover for the Newport medics while they helped the fan.

Bruno Fernandes and Kobbie Mainoo had given the Red Devils a comfortable lead after quarter of an hour, but a wonder goal from Bryn Morris and an equaliser from Will Evans levelled it up. Antony's goal put the visitors back in front and saw them through to the next round, where they will face either Bristol City or Nottingham Forest.

It came hours after the derby match between West Brom and Wolves was suspended for half an hour after crowd trouble saw fans fight with each other and spill out onto the pitch.
