THE FA Cup second round replay between Chesterfield and Droylsden has been rearranged for next Tuesday (19.45).

It will be the fourth time the sides have met. The first game at the Blue Square North side was called off at half-time off due to fog - Droylsden having led 1-0 at the time - while the rearranged game saw a 2-2 draw.

Tuesday night's replay at Saltergate was abandoned after 70 minutes due to floodlight failure, the League Two side having led 2-0 at the time.

The winners of the tie will play Ipswich Town in the third round 14 days later at Portman Road (January 3).
