Tom Nichols: 'We deserved Liverpool draw'

Exeter City attacker Tom Nichols insists that his team deserved to draw 2-2 with Liverpool in their FA Cup third-round match at St James Park on Friday evening.

Exeter City attacker Tom Nichols has claimed that his team "thoroughly deserved" to draw 2-2 with Liverpool in the FA Cup on Friday.

The League Two side have set up a trip to Anfield after holding their Premier League opposition in the third round of the competition.

Nichols, who opened the scoring at St James Park, also paid tribute to his teammates, before describing his ninth-minute goal.

"I thought the boys were brilliant. We thoroughly deserved the draw and have a trip to Anfield," Nichols told BBC Sport. "I was doing work with one of our coaches the day before. It was a great ball into the area and I got a foot on it. The fans have been different class the last four of five games."

Nichols has scored 10 league goals for the Grecians this season.
