Boston United's National League North fixture at Darlington will be replayed, it has been decided.

The Pilgrims' medical staff received praise for their handling of the situation while both mangers at the time reportedly saying they were happy for the result to stand.

However, despite United putting forward a case that they should be awarded the points, the National League have decided the contest must be replayed.

The contest will now be played at Blackwell Meadows on Tuesday, February 16 (KO 7.45pm).
