Highlights: Newport County 0-2 West Ham United
West Ham United booked their place in the Carabao Cup third round with a 2-0 victory over League Two side Newport County on Tuesday night.
Newport have made a name for themselves the cups recently, taking Tottenham Hotspur to an FA Cup replay two seasons ago, before defeating Leicester in the same competition last year, but West Ham ensured there was to be no repeat this time in South Wales.
It wasn’t for the want of trying on Newport’s part, as Mike Flynn’s team gave it a real go before the Hammers took the contest away from them.
Jack Wilshere’s calm finish opened the scoring two minutes before half-time, while summer signing Pablo Fornals wrapped it up with his first goal in Claret & Blue midway through the second period.
