Liversedge will be aiming to cause an FA Vase upset on Saturday when they head to Bedlington Terriers in the second qualifying round (ko 3pm).

Liversedge lie 17th in the NCE League Premier Division, while Bedlington are riding high at the top of Northern League Division One.

The Terriers have won eight, drawn one and lost four of their opening 13 matches, so Liversedge are not without hope.

The Clayborners will certainly be hoping to recreate the form of Tuesday night, when they had Ossett Town on the rack before a floodlight failure cost them a chance of an upset in the West Riding County Cup.

Liversedge led 4-1 after 78 minutes when the lights went out, caused by a power cut in the area, which saw the match abandoned.

Liversedge found out late yesterday (Thursday) that the County FA had determined the result will stand and the Clayborners are through to the second round..

Andy Wood bagged a brace on Tuesday as Liversedge fought back from a goal down to take control against their higher ranked opponents.

Liversedge will certainly hope Wood is on form tomorrow as they bid to make Vase progress and the Clayborners look set to be well supported, with a coach leaving the clubhouse at 10.30am.

Sedge bowed out of the FA Cup at the extra preliminary round, going down 2-1 to Seaham Red Star, and they will be keen to avoid a similar fate on their venture into the Vase.

Sedge suffered a 3-0 defeat at high flying Tadcaster Albion last Saturday and return to Northern Counties East action on October 11 with a trip to local rivals Thackley.

Liversedge Under-19s have started the season in superb fashion and currently lead the Northern Youth Alliance West Division with three wins from their opening four games.
