The FA Cup fourth qualifying round match between Haringey Borough and Yeovil Town will be replayed on Oct. 29 after last week’s game was abandoned due to alleged racist abuse suffered by Haringey’s players, the FA said on Monday.
The match was stopped in the 64th minute with Yeovil leading 1-0 after some fans abused and spat at Cameroonian goalkeeper Douglas Pajetat at Coles Park.
“Following the abandonment of the FA Cup fourth round qualifying fixture… the FA Challenge Cup Committee has made the decision for the original fixture to be replayed on Tuesday Oct. 29 at Haringey Borough FC,” the FA said in a statement.
“In the event that a replay is required, this shall be played on Nov. 5.”

The FA said two arrests were made and that their own investigation was ongoing.
The incident came days after England’s black players were subjected to racist abuse during a Euro 2020 qualifier against Bulgaria in Sofia, which led to arrests and the resignations of manager Krasimir Balakov and football union president Borislav Mihaylov.
Two men have been arrested this morning following an investigation into reports of racist comments made during a match between Haringey Borough FC and Yeovil Town on Saturday, 19 October.
The men – aged 23 and 26 – were arrested in Chard and Yeovil on suspicion of racially aggravated common assault.
They are both in custody at a police station in Somerset.
Officers from the Met are leading the investigation with the assistance of Avon and Somerset police.
Anyone who was at the match who has any further information that can help assist officers with the investigation should contact police on 101 quoting CAD 5272/19 Oct
