Oxford United fought back from two goals down to earn a replay against Conference Premier side Gateshead in an enthralling FA Cup first-round tie.

James Marwood gave Gateshead the lead with a fine strike from 35 yards out.

Having earlier cleared off the line, Jamie Chandler then made it 2-0 after rounding keeper Ryan Clarke and side-footing home for the visitors.

Deane Smalley pulled one back from close range before Danny Rose levelled late on with a header from two yards.
