Football: Burscough to battle for big prize; Hucknall Town........0 Burscough ...........0.


THE prize in tomorrow's FA Cup fourth qualifying round replay at Victoria Park is a home game against first division Gillingham.

The winners will be the side holding their nerve after looking level in ability. Both showed enterprise but were guilty of poor shooting.

Midway through an allaction first-half, Matt Parry was unable to guide the ball home, when following up David Eaton's challenge on Hucknall keeper Lindley Then Eaton rolled the ball wide after good work by Tony Gray.

Matt Boswell was also busy, making one magnificent tip-over as Gary Ricketts attempted to chip him.

Parry had a goal disallowed five minutes from the interval, his deflected shot going past Lindley, who was impeded by Bell The end to end action continued in the second period.

Ricketts was dangerous for Hucknall, especially with dead-ball kicks, and substitute Mark Smith proved a handful.

Lindley twice kept Gray at bay, before thwarting Gedman.

A late scare for Burscough, a Robert Gill free-kick, was dealt with by Boswell.
