Jon Underwood and Neil Baker were keen to write another chapter in the Rebels’ history book on Saturday afternoon but were narrowly denied at the LNER Community Stadium.

After the match, joint boss Underwood tweeted: “Gutted our Trophy run is over but proud of our lads who dominated the 2nd half but just couldn’t find the goal we needed.
“Fans were brilliant and I’d like to thank each and every one of them for travelling and getting behind us like that.”
