NINE-MAN Newport were beaten by Portsmouth in front of a crowd of more than 4,000 at Rodney Parade.
The visitors led 2-0 at the break thanks to a Ryan Taylor penalty and a Jed Wallace header after Adam Chapman's disgusting lunge on Danny Hollands gave Pompey a man advantage.
Ismail Yakubu headed County back into things with time running out, but Darcy Blake's late red for a second yellow card ended any hopes of a revival.
