Brighton survived a penalty shoot-out at Newport to book a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup, winning 4-3 on spot-kicks after the tie had been drawn 1-1 after 120 minutes.
Goalkeeper Jason Steele, who was at fault for Newport's equaliser in the final seconds of normal time, made four penalty saves to send the Seagulls through.
Brighton thought they had won the tie when Solly March struck from the edge of the penalty area with just 10 seconds of the 90 minutes remaining.
But Newport saved themselves with the final act in the sixth minute of stoppage time, Steele letting Liam Shephard's cross slip through his grasp and the unfortunate Adam Webster diverted the ball into his own net to set up extra time.
Webster, though, scored the decisive spot-kick after Pascal Gross, Lewis Dunk and Davy Propper had been on target for Brighton, with Joss Labadie, Ryan Taylor and Jamie Proctor replying for Newport.
Defeat was harsh on Newport's outstanding goalkeeper Tom King, who made two stops in the shoot-out himself after earlier denying Andi Zeqiri and Dunk with breathtaking saves.
