MIKAEL Ndjoli scored his first Gillingham goal last night - but was sent off minutes later as his side exited the Carabao Cup.

The tie was locked at 1-1 between the Gills and Newport County after a Brandon Hanlan penalty and Tristan Abrahams strike.

Cherries loanee Ndjoli looked to have sent Steve Evans' men into round two after netting a penalty himself in the 90th minute to put the hosts 2-1 up.

But the striker went from hero to villain as he conceded a spot kick for a foul on Daniel Leadbitter moments later. He was shown his second yellow card by referee Trevor Kettle in the aftermath and Padraig Amond made no mistake from 12 yards to send the contest to a shoot-out at Priestfield.

League Two Newport prevailed 4-1 on penalties to set up a clash with West Ham.

Ndjoli, 20, has made three appearances for Gillingham this season.

Fellow loanee Sam Surridge was also in Carabao Cup action, playing the full 90 minutes as Swansea beat Northampton 3-1 at Liberty Stadium thanks to a late Andre Ayew brace.
