Both Harrogate Town and Hastings United will be in the FA Cup third-round draw for the first time after Jamie Crellin's equaliser earned the visitors a replay at Wetherby Road.

One division separates these two non-league clubs and there was nothing to choose between them on the pitch as Tom Platt saw his first-half header cancelled out by Crellin after the break.

Matt Rhead's injury-time leveller ensured Mansfield remained in the third round of the FA Cup as his late header snatched a 3-3 draw at Lincoln. Rhead climbed off the bench with just six minutes to go and with his side trailing 3-2 but he snatched a replay for the visitors at the death.

James Beattie was on target for Accrington Stanley who drew 3-3 with Oxford United - Lee Molyneux netting in the 90th minute for Accrington, only for Michael Rayne to level for Oxford.

Shaun Miller scored two dramatic last-gasp goals to give Sheffield United a memorable 2-1 win over Port Vale and send the hosts into the third round of the FA Cup. Vale had led until the 90th minute thanks to Tom Pope's 21st goal of the season but visiting boss Micky Adams was to endure a miserable return to Bramall Lane, 18 months after his sacking.

Former Crewe striker Calvin Zola's first-half goal sent his former club crashing out of the FA Cup as Burton beat higher league opposition 1-0 at Gresty Road.

Chelmsford City's interest in the FA Cup was ended at the second-round stage for the second successive season as Crawley eased to a comfortable 3-0 victory at the Broadfield Stadium. First-half goals from Nicky Adams and Billy Clarke and Gary Alexander's late penalty saw the hosts advance in untroubled fashion against their Blue Square Bet South opponents, who had striker Donovan Simmonds sent-off in the 35th minute.

Goals from Andre Gray and Alex Lawless were enough to book Luton's place in the FA Cup third round with a 2-1 triumph despite a late rally from Dorchester at Kenilworth Road. The Blue Square Bet Premier side looked to be cruising after goals either side of half-time from Gray and Lawless against their Blue Square Bet South opponents. However, Arran Pugh's 71st minute header rekindled the Magpies' hopes and Luton goalkeeper Mark Tyler needed to be at his best to ensure the home side's progression.
