This is why Sunderland and Gillingham are being left sweating over their FA Cup replay
Sunderland and Gillingham are still waiting on a confirmed date for their FA Cup first round replay.
The game is currently scheduled to be played on Tuesday, November 19 at Priestfield – but the club’s are still awaiting confirmation from the FA.
Replays could be moved for television, and a statement from Gillingham confirmed that the date of a replay will not be announced until the television picks are confirmed.
The statement read: “The replay is currently due to take place on Tuesday November 19 at 7.45pm, however a date will be confirmed once television picks have been confirmed.”
Televised replays are expected to be confirmed after the round one tie between Harrogate Town and Portsmouth – scheduled for Monday evening – is completed, meaning the Black Cats and Gills should have clarity on when their replay will take place in the coming days.
