Peterborough NECI (blue) in action.

The tie was first abandoned last month amid allegations of the Weldon manager refusing to leave the field of play and a second attempt two weeks ago was declared null and void when Weldon were found guilty of playing an ineligible player after winning 3-0.

NECI, a Peterborough League Division Four side, believe they should have been awarded the tie, but Northants FA instead ordered a second replay tomorrow.

The game is scheduled for 2pm at Werrington Sports Centre.
