The English football association FA decided on Monday that the FA Cup game between Haringey Borough and Yeovil Town (0-1) will be played in its entirety on Tuesday 29 October. The game was halted on Saturday due to racism.
During the match in the fourth qualifying round, Haringey goalkeeper Douglas Pajetat was treated racially by fans of the visiting club. When he went to get a story, he was pelted with bottles, among other things.
Haringey's manager then asked his players to leave the field and Yeovil's team followed that example. Moments later, both teams returned to the field, but the game was not resumed.
It was the second time in a short time that English football was startled by racism. Last Monday, a group of Bulgarian hooligans already misbehaved during the European Championship qualifying match with England. The game in Sofia, which ended in 0-6, was stopped twice.
Haringey Borough is on the seventh level of England. Yeovil Town plays in the National League, the fifth level.
