Gainsborough Trinity manager Steve Housham says his side must not dwell on the fact they wasted a two-goal lead in the first leg of the Blue Square Bet North play-off against FC Halifax Town.

Trinity led 2-0 but head into Sunday's second leg level at 2-2.

Housham told Radio Lincolnshire: "Nothing has been won or lost. It's a one-off shoot-out now.

"They are favourites at their place and will be expected to win, but we will go there full of confidence."

Housham, whose side led 2-0 inside 12 minutes thanks to two Paul Connor goals, added: "We have some disappointed lads. For the first 35 minutes they couldn't cope with us. But I can't fault the effort."
