The two sides met at the beginning of September but the game was abandoned due to an horrendous injury to home striker Damien Stevens.

Ashington chairman Ian Lavery said the decision was “the right thing to do”.

“People paid their entrance fee for the original clash against Penrith and the game was postponed after Damien Stevens suffered an awful injury.

“We think it is just fair and the right thing to do that supporters who were there on that night gain free access to the rematch.

“We will be having a bucket collection for fans to put in whatever they wish with the proceeds being donated to charitable causes.”

Kick off on Tuesday is 7.45pm
