Gateshead host Marske United in an Emirates FA Cup fourth round qualifying replay at Gateshead International Stadium on Tuesday evening (7:45pm kick off).
The two sides met at Mount Pleasant on Saturday afternoon, playing out a goalless draw with a place in the first round proper up for grabs.
Sunday’s draw will see the winner of tomorrow’s replay host National League side Altrincham at home in the first round proper, with the tie scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 6.
The Heed have been in fine form on home soil so far this season with five wins from five in all competitions, including a 6-2 win over Bradford (Park Avenue) in the Emirates FA Cup second round qualifying.
Marske’s only defeat of the season came away from home against Liversedge in August, though since then they have gone 12 games unbeaten in all competitions, conceding only one goal.

Gateshead progressed to the Emirates FA Cup first round proper with a 3-2 win over Marske United at Gateshead International Stadium.
Adam Campbell and Cedwyn Scott put The Heed in the driving seat in the second half before Matty Tymon pulled one back to hand Marske hope.
Dan Ward’s third made sure of the result despite Adam Boyes’ injury time strike as Gateshead progressed to the first round proper.
Mike Williamson made one change to the side that played out a goalless draw at Marske on Saturday as Alex Nicholson replaced Matty Jacob at left-back.
Gateshead controlled possession in the game’s early stages but Marske held their shape defensively, with no real chances to speak of early on.
Adam Wheatley went into the referee’s book for a heavy challenge on Cedwyn Scott as the visitors looked to impose themselves in the middle third, while Liam O’Sullivan escaped a yellow card for a similar challenge on Adam Campbell later on.
It took half-an-hour for the first real effort of the game to arrive through Greg Olley as he won possession 30 yards out with intense pressing, before forcing Ryan Catterick into a reflex save from the edge of the box.
Adam Boyes sent a shot over the crossbar at the other end, while Macaulay Langstaff drew another stop from Catterick as The Heed looked to open the scoring before the break.
The biggest chance of the half came moments before the half-time whistle as Scott and Dan Ward linked up before the former’s blocked shot fell to Ward, whose curler was destined for the bottom corner only for Wheatley’s studs to divert the ball clear off the line.
Ward saw another seemingly goal-bound shot cleared off the line three minutes after the restart when he prodded Campbell’s cross towards goal, only for Connor Smith to clear centimetres away from goal.
The deadlock was finally broken with 53 minutes gone and it was Campbell who found the net, staying alert in the box to head home the rebound after Langstaff’s shot cannoned back off the crossbar.
Gateshead saw a flurry of chances pass by after opening the scoring as Ward and Langstaff both saw chances saved by Catterick, but Scott found a way through with 67 minutes on the clock to slot past the ‘keeper and double the lead.
The two-goal advantage lasted only two minutes however, as Williamson was robbed of possession on the edge of the box by Tymon who prodded past the on-rushing Jacob Chapman to haul Marske into it.
Ward finally got his goal after threatening on multiple occasions in the second half as he slotted under Catterick to make sure of the result, with Boyes’ late header coming too late for the visitors to spark a comeback.
