FC Halifax Town’s FA Trophy quarter-final with Dartford is on, despite the heavy rain in Calderdale over the last 24 hours.

No pitch inspection is currently planned for the match, which was postponed on Saturday due to snow at The Shay.

The winners of the tie will face Grimsby in the semi-final, with the first leg at Blundell Park on February 16.

Only the East Stand will be open for tonight’s clash, with the club expecting a crowd of no more than 1,000.
