FA Cup: Westfields 1-1 Curzon Ashton highlights

Ninth-tier Westfields earned an FA Cup first-round replay after a draw against National League North Curzon Ashton.

The Midland League Premier Division side, the lowest ranked left in the Cup, will be in the second-round draw despite Adam Morgan's late leveller cancelling out Craig Jones' penalty.

Elsewhere, National League side Macclesfield knocked out League One Walsall thanks to John McCombe's goal.

National League North side Brackley drew 2-2 with League One Gillingham.

The non-league side had taken a 2-0 lead before a double from Frank Nouble saved the EFL side from a shock defeat.

There were controversial scenes at the end of Whitehawk's 1-1 draw with fellow non-league side Stourbridge.

The hosts thought they had scored a last-minute winner only for the referee to rule the goal out as Javier Favarel had struck the ball just as he had started to blow for full-time.

On a day short of real surprises Westfields came close to a famous win.

Boss Sean Edwards, who said his players do not get paid for FA Cup games, admitted the 52 places between his side and Curzon showed.

He told the BBC's Final Score: "Curzon Ashton had a lot of the ball. But we're in the hat.

"I'm disappointed we didn't really play but we'd have taken a draw, just to have our name in the hat on Monday.

"I said it felt like Christmas Day - now I've opened a present, it's not the present I want but it is still a present!"

You can follow all the action on a special Final Score starting at 13:45 GMT ON BBC One and the BBC Sport website and there's an FA Cup Match of the Day show starting at 17:30 GMT on BBC Two.
