VAUXHALL manager Alvin McDonald praised his side's character as they temporarily booked their historic place in the first-round draw of the FA Cup.
The Motormen twice battled back from a goal down against undefeated Lancaster City to secure a 2-2 draw and a replay at Rivacre Park.
McDonald said: 'We've proved a point no matter what. We've come into the lion's den today and no-one gave us a chance.'
Vauxhall were hit early on as Lancaster took the lead through Kenny Mayer on nine minutes.
Kevin Holliday's left-wing cross was met by Mayer's stooping header with keeper Steve Hilton in no-man's land.
But from then on, the Motormen started to enjoy the bulk of possession while the hosts looked dangerous from crosses.
Vauxhall almost drew level when Lancaster's Andy Lyons struck his own post from Peter Cumiskey's corner kick.
The equaliser came on 29 minutes as Terry Fearns slipped the ball through to Robbie Lawton and the Vauxhall winger was felled in the area by Farrell Kilbane.
Cumiskey stepped up from the penalty spot to drill a low shot to Mark Thornley's right and although the keeper guessed correctly, the ball nestled into the corner of the net.
Lancaster went close on the stroke of half-time but Hilton brilliantly clawed away Brian Welch's effort from Brian Butler's right-wing cross.
The hosts restored their lead just five minutes after the interval when Welch showed great vision to catch Hilton off his line, lobbing him from 40 yards out.
But rather than deflate the Motormen, Lancaster's spectacular goal seemed to inspire them and they were level again within three minutes.
Carl Nesbitt's right-wing corner was flicked on by the head of Matt Haddrell and Cumiskey was on hand at the back post to fire home from close range.
Vauxhall: Hilton, Rigby, Thompson, Brazier, Haddrell, Lynch, Nesbitt, Lawton, Cumiskey, Young, Fearns. Attendance 630.
