Chester FC or FC Halifax Town will host Gateshead in the quarter-finals of the FA Trophy following this morning's draw at Wembley.

The Blues and the Shaymen were due to face each other in the third round on Saturday but a waterlogged pitch at the Shay Stadium forced the tie to be postponed .

The game was originally rescheduled for tomorrow night but has since been moved to Wednesday with heavy rain expected in West Yorkshire on Monday and Tuesday.

Rugby league side Halifax RLFC played Whitehaven at the Shay on Sunday afternoon and it is hoped the decision to push the tie back 24 hours will increase the chances of it going ahead.

The winners, who will receive £7,000 in prize money, will entertain National League rivals Gateshead on Saturday, February 27.

Gateshead beat AFC Fylde 1-0 in the third round at the weekend with a goal from Ryan Bowman.

The draw could see ex-Halifax boss Neil Aspin, now managing the Heed, return to face his former club although the Blues will be out to prevent that reunion taking place.
