STEVE Young's rebuilding job at St Neots took another boost as his side earned a creditable draw against title-chasing Deeping.

And the Rowley Park club will need to continue their good form on Saturday when Ridgeons Premier Division side Lowestoft Town visit for a second-round FA Vase tie.

Scott Grant gave the home side the lead on 17 minutes with a bullet header from the edge of the box but David Cobb drilled in for the visitors after 36 minutes following a half-cleared corner.

St Neots remained positive after the break and created some chances to clinch the victory but Sean Murray was denied by the woodwork.

A delighted Young said: "We defended excellently against one of the division's top sides and it was a fully deserved point.

"Lowestoft will be looking to win the Vase this season but if we can build on Saturday's performance and nick an early goal we'll have a chance.
