Varley admitted their second-half performance was below par after a solid first-half showing, but the fact they were in this morning’s draw was the main thing.

He said: “In the second half we made it difficult for ourselves after playing well in the first half. Our passing wasn’t as good in the second half and we gave the ball away a bit too much, but we got through it and that’s all that matters.”
