Wycombe Wanderers await the winners as FC Halifax Town travel to Guiseley for their FA Cup fourth qualifying round replay at Nethermoor on Tuesday (7.45pm).

The two West Yorkshire rivals battled to a 2-2 draw on Saturday at The Shay, which extended Town’s wait for a clean sheet to 27 games.

Guiseley have only two wins from their last 16 games and have kept only three clean sheets themselves all season.

Halifax have conceded 22 goals in their last six games, and have won only once in their last 12 matches.

Kieran Sadlier will be unavailable for Halifax after he was refused permission to play by parent club Peterborough, while fellow loanees Julian Banton, David Brooks and CJ Hamilton have all returned to Sheffield United.

Centre-back Keil O’Brien was substituted on Saturday due to tiredness in what was his first senior appearance since December last year, but is expected to be in contention.

With Rob Atkinson, Ryan Toulson, Danny Lowe and Will Hatfield in their squad, Guiseley could field as many as four ex-Town players, while manager Mark Bower is also a former Halifax captain.
