The Magpies get the chance of revenge when they face Luton for the third time within a week on Tuesday night - in the FA Trophy first round replay.

Dorchester searched for an equaliser after the break, but Luton pushed further ahead thanks to Alex Lawless's strike from close range.

However, the Magpies didn't give up as Arran Pugh headed home to give Luton a nail-biting final twenty minutes.

Ben Watson, Jake Gosling and Sam Malsom were all denied by the impressive Luton goalkeeper Mark Tyler as the Hatters booked their spot in the third round.
