County secure draw to earn another FA Trophy replay

A second-half Jimmy Ball header cancelled out Lee Ndlovu’s strike to earn County a replay and give the club a chance of progressing to FA Trophy semi-finals for the first time ever.

In what was a drab first-half, the contest came alive in the 69th minute when Ndlovu tapped in from close range courtesy of an Alex Gudger headed pass.

The Hatters, however, were level only four minutes later when Jason Oswell’s header cannoned off the crossbar into the path of Ball who duly nodded in from close range.

The game petered out into a relatively fair 1-1 draw, with County now having to contend with another Tuesday night trophy replay.
