Exeter City have achieved an impressive draw against Manchester United in the FA Cup.

The Conference side, which is 93 places beneath the Premiership team, managed to keep a clean sheet on Saturday. The final score was 0-0.

The debt-ridden club will now host a replay against the Old Trafford side which will give it a financial boost.

Fans took control of Exeter City in 2003 after it was relegated to the Conference League.

Takings from Saturday's match, and now the replay, will provide a welcome boost to Exeter City's coffers.
