NCEL compatriots Harrogate Railway and Albion Sports will face off again on Wednesday night after sharing a 1-1 draw in the FA Cup extra-preliminary round.

Railway got off to a flying start courtesy of young midfielder Harry Brown's 24th minute screamer which went in off the underside of the cross bar from 30 yards.

However, Albion levelled just four minutes later as Daniel Facey turned in from close range from a good save by Jake Lofthouse.

Lofthouse then proved to be Railway's hero as he produced another strong save to deny Albion defender Kamran Basi from the penalty spot.

George Mason had Railway's best chance of an entertaining second half but no goals were added.

The two teams will meet each other against at Farsley Celtic's Throstle Nest bidding for a spot in the preliminary round on August 20.
