Terry Brown said: "A fantastic performance and considering the conditions on a foul night, I thought both sides played as much good football as the conditions allowed.

"It was nip and tuck, we had to dig deep and I'm very proud of the boys because they did dig deep. I am absolutely chuffed for the supporters tonight.

"Once they scored I thought we got the bit between our teeth and thoroughly deserved the equaliser.

"I thought we always looked like scoring and really should have sewn it up 3-1, 4-1 in the last ten minutes.

"They were a physical side and I don't mean that in a derogatory manner — they're just a big strong side. At times they out-muscled us and I'm very proud of how our boys competed and went on to be the stronger side because there isn't a stronger side than Farnborough.

"There were a few tackles in the first half that you would expect in the conference and we had to lift ourselves up to that.

"It's a bit of a scalp for us. We've struggled to beat some very average sides, so beat a very good side like Farnborough is very pleasing."

GRAHAM Westley added: "I was delighted with the boys. We took a big gamble in playing a lot of players who had been out for three or four weeks in some instances and seven months in Gary Patterson's instance.

"It was good to see those lads who haven't had much first team action come together in a makeshift side and line-up and put in a strong 90 minutes.

"I was very disappointed with the sending off. If anybody can tell me the difference between Watson's challenge and the one D'sane put in on the halfway line, I think they would be honest and say that D'sane's was likely to cause injury and Watson's wasn't.

"That obviously made a big difference in the game, but the lads didn't look for an excuse, they got on with the game and I thought they put in a strong 90 minutes.

"We had one player out there in Watson who started the match on Saturday, while they obviously took it very seriously.

"There were a lot of players out there who have been in their starting line-up and it was never going to be easy for our lads on that basis, but I thought they climatised and dealt with the situation very well."
