Andy Awford's second spell as caretaker manager got off to the perfect start in the League Two fixture played at Rodney Parade on Mar 17, 2015 between Newport County AFC and Portsmouth. The match, played in front of 4,261 spectators, got off to the perfect start for the visitors as Ryan Taylor (6 mins) put them ahead from a penalty. Following a red card for Adam Chapman, the visitors tightened their grip on the game through Jed Wallace (40 mins). Ismail Yakubu (74 mins) gave the home side some hope but a second red card for Darcy Blake killed off those hopes.
