In a close FA Cup contest between League One rivals, played in torrential rain and hail at Boundary Park, Scott Golbourne's goal secured a 1-1 draw for Wanderers and ensured the the tie will go back to Molineux after Oldham had gone in front through Genseric Kusunga.

Johnson said: "I'm really pleased with the lads because we created chances and could have forced a win.

"We set our stall to attack Wolves for the first 15 minutes and we got our goal with a good header from a set-piece.

"It was difficult at times but in the first half Wolves showed they are a very good side and you have to respect their quality.

"They are an ex-Premier League team who still have an awful lot of talent, so there will be times when they put a lot of passes together.

"We still looked quite comfortable at 1-1 and, if anything, I thought we were the side in the ascendancy.

"Wolves will go home knowing they have had a proper match. We played well and it's still anybody's game."
