Wrexham-Brighton set for tomorrow

Published Add your comment

The FA Cup third-round replay between Wrexham and Brighton has been rearranged for Wednesday night after heavy frost and freezing temperatures caused the game, originally scheduled for Tuesday, to be postponed.

The clubs and the Football Association have agreed to switch the match to a 1915 kick-off at the Racecourse Ground, following a 1-1 draw in the first meeting, with a fourth-round showdown against Newcastle up for grabs.

"We've been monitoring the situation closely with all parties and, given that Brighton's players travelled up on Monday, this seemed to be the best possible solution," Dragons chief executive David Roberts told www.wrexhamafc.co.uk.
