Harrogate Town face FA Cup replay with Frickley

Harrogate Town

Harrogate Town will have to replay Frickley Athletic after their FA Cup tie ended in a draw.

The second qualifying round tie ended 1-1 after Frickley equalised just before half time after Will Turl gave Harrogate the lead.

Manager Simon Weaver told BBC Radio York: "It's an FA Cup encounter that we had to not get beaten in.

"It'll be a good game on Tuesday night. We'll have to see who's fit. There are a few people carrying knocks."

Harrogate Town started the game as favourites against the side from the Northern Premier League.

Weaver said: "It was tough. We won the toss and didn't want the sun in our defenders' eyes so we went downhill.

"You wanted to have a good lead at half-time but they equalised just prior to that.

"Going up the hill in that heat is going to be hard work. That proved to be the case.

"It was a totally different game in the second half.

"I thought in the first half we were by far the better team and we passed it about for fun really.

"I thought everyone was playing really well. We shouldn't have given a daft free kick away.

"Their game was based around the long throw and set pieces. It was a typical cup tie in that sense. But we came through it."

The replay will take place at the CNG Stadium on Tuesday at 1945 BST.
