BOTH Scarborough Athletic and Harrogate Town will need replays after their third-qualifying round ties in the Emirates FA Cup ended in draws.

Athletic required a late goal by substitute Leon Osborne to pull off a 2-2 draw at home to Stratford Town, with their replay tomorrow, while Town and Bradford Park Avenue will meet again tonight at Horsfall Stadium after a goalless draw at the CNG Stadium.

All three will be in today's draw at 1pm, when the Vanarama National League sides enter the competition.

Ben Stephens put Stratford, bidding to reach the fourth round for the first time in their history, ahead after eight minutes, only for Michael Coulson to level 11 minutes later with a stunning strike from 20 yards out.

But Town had a golden opportunity to take the lead again in the 22nd minute when an outpaced Dan Thirkell pushed Jaz Luckie in the back in the penalty area.

Stephens' poorly-struck spot kick was saved, as was the follow-up by Luckie, but Seadogs keeper Tom Taylor was beaten at the third attempt by Dan Summerfield.

Taylor saved brilliantly on the hour from Luckie after Will Grocott's 30-yard shot had thumped against the bar, but the tables were turned three minutes into the five minutes of stoppage time when Osborne slammed the ball in off the underside of the bar after Max Wright's header had been parried.

The Seadogs' crowd of 1,180 was the fourth best of the round after Stockport County (3,034), South Shields (2,806) and Hereford (2,440), and home boss Steve Kittrick said: "We got out of jail. We weren't at our best by a long shot."

Harrogate Town were convinced that they should have had a first-half penalty against Avenue when Terry Kennedy was thrown to the ground, while Warren Burrell clipped the bar for Town with an acrobatic attempt on the hour.

It needed a superb block by Kennedy to deny Wayne Brooksby late on.
