Scott Dundas praised his battling Chasetown players after coming from a goal down to earn a 1-1 draw with Gainsborough Trinity in the FA Cup.

Gainsborough took the lead early in the second half through Alex Byrne before Levi Rowley equalised six minutes later.

Captain Jack Langston almost made it 2-1 for Chasetown after nearly catching Gainsborough's keeper off his line with a long range lob, but the chance fell just wide of the post.

The draw means both sides will face a replay in this first round qualifying fixture on Tuesday at Gainsborough.

Dundas said: "I thought they were tremendous today, again after changing the back four.

"But they came out fighting, the two lads that we bought in have done really well for us, Josh Beaumont and Sam Luke.

"That enabled us to get the right players into the right positions. First half I thought they battled well to stay in the game, you know, against a very good Gainsborough team.

"But then we grew more into the game. Unfortunately we went 1-0 down after the ricochet and it broke to the lad and he put it away well. But then we scored a really good goal and it (Jack's shot) fell just the other side of the post and it could have all been different."
