Blyth Spartans head to Bradford to face Park Avenue at the Horsfall Stadium on Saturday with an earlier kick off of 1pm due to floodlight damage.

Bradford PA meanwhile lost 2-1 to Salford City. Oli Johnson fired Park Avenue ahead from the penalty spot but the visitors responded as Michael Phenix drew them level and then Gus Mafuta fired them ahead.
