With an extremely anticipated FA Cup tie approaching between Manchester United and Yeovil Town, tickets for the fixture which will take place on January 4 2015 went on sale on Monday morning.

But lifelong Yeovil fan James Krzyzanowski wanted to make sure that he could definitely get his hands hold of a precious ticket of which 7,500 were available whilst 2,000 are on offer to travelling supporters from Manchester.

The 22-year-old began the swirling queue that snaked halfway around the stadium when he arrived at Huish Park at 16:00 on Sunday afternoon with a sleeping bag and essentials.

Upon his awakening the following morning, the ticket office opened and he was finally awarded with his long awaited admission.

He explained to BBC reporters: "It was a mad decision. It was so cold but worth it. I'm putting the tickets in a safe for 12 days."

"To have the tickets and to go to the game feels like all my Christmases and birthdays have come at once."

The club website announced on Monday afternoon that the allocation had rapidly sold out.

Yeovil may have not played the Red Devils for 65 years, but they will be still out looking for revenge from their 8-0 hammering against Manchester United in 1949.

But the League One side will have to be at their utmost best in the fixture as their league form suggests that another slaughtering could take place, collecting just 20 points in 21 games as the Glovers face back-to-back relegations.

United on the other hand are on the upper hand at the moment as they sit promisingly in third position after Louis van Gaal promised a threatening title challenge.
