Dartford will face Grimsby or FA Cup giant killers Luton in the FA Trophy semi-finals if they win their rearranged last-eight clash with FC Halifax Town.

The Darts were due to visit Halifax on Saturday, but snow in West Yorkshire forced the game to be postponed.

Originally moved to Tuesday night, the quarter-final has now been put back 24 hours to Wednesday to allow The Shay pitch to recover from heavy rain.

Should Tony Burman’s side progress, they will be away in the semi-final first leg on February 16 before returning to Princes Park for the second leg on February 23.

Dartford have already recorded 2-0 wins at Grimsby and Luton in Blue Square Bet Premier this season, although both clubs are above them in the table.

The only side definitely through to the semi-finals are Wrexham, with bad weather meaning eight clubs make up a convoluted last-four draw.

Semi-final draw: First Leg (February 16): Wrexham v Gainsborough Trinity or Gateshead or Barrow, Grimsby Town or Luton Town v FC Halifax Town or Dartford.                                                                              Second leg (February 23): Gainsborough Trinity or Gateshead or Barrow AFC v Wrexham, FC Halifax Town or Dartford v Grimsby Town or Luton Town.
