Marine entertain Atherton Collieries at the Marine Travel Arena this evening in the Emirates FA Cup 3rd Qualifying Round replay of Saturday’s goalless draw at the Skuna Stadium.
Yesterday’s draw for the 4th Qualifying Round handed the winners of tonight’s game a plum home tie against National League club Wrexham, to be played on Saturday 16th October.
The tie will be settled tonight, with extra-time and penalties to decide the outcome if necessary.
Marine Manager Neil Young will check on the fitness of James Barrigan after the midfielder suffered a knock on Saturday, but veteran defender David Raven made a welcome return to the bench after injury and will be pressing for a place this evening.
This cup tie is all-pay with membership cards and season tickets not valid for this match. Tickets for the game are still available to purchase via the following link;
Gates open at 6:45pm and fans entering the stadium must provide their e-ticket or printed ticket which will be scanned on entry at gates 1 or 2 on College Road, or at gates 5 and 6 adjacent to the club entrance which will also be open to accommodate the extra number of spectators that are expected to attend the game.
We look forward to seeing you this evening!
