It came from a Newport County corner, with the ball nodded into his path and Janneh was unmarked to fire the ball into the net, which you can watch below...

 

Grimsby Town secured a 3-2 win over Leyton Orient thanks to an injury-time penalty. Midfielder James Morton came off the bench for a second half appearance, while winger Owura Edwards was brought on in the 62nd minute.

Left-back George Nurse also earned a clean sheet with a Man of the Match performance in Walsall’s 0-0 draw with Exeter City.

Louis Britton played 70 minutes of Torquay United’s 2-0 win against Dover Athletic and in Scotland, Marley Watkins played the full 90 minutes of Aberdeen’s goalless draw with Dundee United.

Kasey Palmer was introduced in the 62nd minute of Swansea City’s 2-1 home defeat to Huddersfield Town, while strikers Tommy Conway and Freddie Hinds featured in Bath City’s 1-0 defeat to Dartford. Will Buse conceded twice in a 2-0 loss for Dorchester Town, while Jonny Smith came on for the second half of Swindon Town’s 2-0 loss at home to Sunderland.
