Harrogate Town host FC United of Manchester in an FA Cup replay at the CNG Stadium tonight (Tuesday), 7.45pm kick-off.

The prize for the winner of the third qualifying round clash is a mouthwatering home showdown with National League North rivals FC Halifax Town.

Town visited FC United’s Broadhurst Park base on Saturday, playing out a 3-3 draw.

They trailed until the 96th minute when Joe Colbeck popped up with a last-gasp equaliser to keep alive Simon Weaver’s side’s FA Cup hopes.

The Red Rebels were visitors to the CNG less than a month ago when they were beaten 3-1 in the league, Tom Platt netting a brace for the home side on the night.
