The Red Devils clinched an astonishing 6-5 FA Cup victory at Torquay last weekend, but only had a Max Watters goal to show for their first-half dominance at Wetherby Road.

It then proved insufficient as Jack Muldoon’s 85th-minute header earned the hosts a point.

“They kept at it and had a gameplan of putting long throws into the box, but we knew that was going to happen and couldn’t stop them scoring.”
