Leicester manager Claude Puel has revealed his frustration at seeing his side suffer a shock FA Cup defeat to Newport County on Sunday.

Oldham had to come from a goal down in the final 14 minutes to beat Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Claudio Ranieri's Fulham reign has got off to a hard start and it got worse for the former Leicester boss at the hands of Pete Wild's Oldham.

Premier League champions Manchester City and Watford had no such problems, claiming 7-0 and 2-0 wins over Rotherham and Woking respectively.

Leicester City were the victims of the biggest shock of the FA Cup third round on Sunday afternoon, when they were dumped out after a 2-1 defeat to League Two side Newport County, and their fans were full of criticism for one of their forwards after the match.

The Exiles got off to a great start when Jamille Matt headed in a cross from Robbie Willmott after just 10 minutes.

But, with five minutes left, Newport were awarded a penalty after Leicester's Marc Albrighton inexplicably raised his arm to block a cross into the box and Padraig Amond made no mistake from the spot to spark delirious scenes among the Welsh club's supporters. "The magic of the FA Cup happened today, definitely".

"It's Roy of the Rovers stuff. I am the most proud man in Oldham, I can't believe it", Wild, in temporary charge after Frankie Bunn was sacked, said.

On another day of surprises following Cardiff, Huddersfield and Ipswich's exits to lower league opposition on Saturday, Barnet beat Sheffield United at Bramall Lane thanks to Shaquile Coulthirst's penalty on 21 minutes.
