A SECOND-half equaliser from substitute Jon Newby earned Town the chance of a second qualifying round replay at the HG Recruitment Stadium on Tuesday, kick off 7.45pm.
Warrington trailed to a first half Steven Jeff penalty after the linesman flagged for a foul inside the box despite the referee signalling to play on.
Young keeper Josh Cook had no chance as Jeff blasted the ball home on 38 minutes, though he pulled off a fine diving save just before the break to keep the score to 1-0.
After a lacklustre first half Warrington stepped up a gear as manager Shaun Reid introduced Chris Gahgan for Liam Dawson and Jon Newby for Ciaran Kilheeney.
The substitutions paid dividends as Newby vollyed the ball home after good work from Ben Wharton, who out-jumped the keeper to head the ball back on 78 minutes.
With the clock ticking down the game opened up with both teams looking for a winner, Warrington's best chance being a David Mannix free kick which almost got through the keeper's legs.
The game will take place on Tuesday evening instead of the scheduled league meeting with Curzon Ashton, who are also involved in an FA cup replay at Lancaster.
Town: Cook, Davies, Thompson, Dogan, McCarten, Robinson, Dawson, Mannix, Wharton, Kilheeney, Metcalfe. Subs Mooney (Dogan) Newby (Kilheeney) Kennedy, West, Millington, Gahgan (Dawson).
