Stevenage boss Alex Revell praised his side after their 2-2 draw with Milton Keynes in the FA Cup first round on Saturday.

After falling behind to a first half strike by the home side's Harry Darling, Boro went 2-1 ahead in a thrilling final 20 minutes.

Goals from Brad Barry and Elliot List in the 70th and 73rd minutes respectively saw an exciting turnaround after the game exploded following a double substitution by Revell, when he replaced Elliot Osbourne and Ben Coker with Jamie Reid and Max Melbourne on 66 minutes.

However, Max Watters emphatic near post strike with 14 minutes remaining ensured a FA Cup replay under the Lamex floodlights next week.

Speaking to Nub News after the match, Revell analysed the match, saying: "I'm disappointed for the players because I think they deserved to win.

"The chances we created were excellent, and the work they put in meant that I thought they deserved to win.

"My players were organised and together.

"At 1-0 down it would have been easy for them to have accepted defeat. But they didn't. They stuck together and as a manager I'm really proud of them."
