Rotherham   2 - 2   Luton

Non-league Luton came from behind to earn an FA Cup replay against high-flying League Two side Rotherham.

Tom Craddock gave Luton the lead from the penalty spot but Rotherham equalised when Adam Le Fondre turned in Tom Pope's cross from close range.

Rotherham then led when Stephen Brogan headed them in front with a looping header from a Gary Roberts cross.

But Luton forced a replay when substitute Mark Nwokeji drilled a low shot past Andy Warrington for 2-2.


Rotherham boss Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"It wasn't the result we wanted, but we've given away two silly goals.

"The penalty was just unbelievable, how naive to get done with that. But then when we went two goals up I thought there was only one winner."

Luton boss Richard Money told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"It was a good performance and a good game. Both teams had spells when they were in control of the match, but I think a draw was a pretty fair result.

"Great credit for the character of the lads for coming back and making it 2-2."
