Darlington versus Boston United will be replayed in February.

The National League North game between the two sides had taken place last month, but was abandoned on 87 minutes as Darlo defender Nicky Hunt awaited treatment after a worrying injury.

Boston were leading 2-0 at the time but the game will now have to be replayed.

The Pilgrims said in a statement: “United put forward what they believed to be a strong case to be awarded all three points, particularly in a Covid-19-condensed season, but the National League board deemed that a full rematch will be required.

“United are disappointed with the outcome and did consider an appeal, but given the detailed submissions already made, it was felt the decision would not be overturned.

“The Pilgrims will therefore visit Blackwell Meadows on Tuesday February 16 (kick-off 7.45pm).”
