FA Cup giant-killers Chasetown expect to learn within the next 24 hours whether they can stage their third-round clash with Cardiff City next month on home soil.
The Scholars grabbed the headlines on Tuesday night with one of the biggest Cup shocks in recent years, bridging a five-level gap to defeat League One side Port Vale and earn a tie with Coca-Cola Championship outfit Cardiff on the first weekend in January.
But emergency services and safety officers will meet with club officials at the 2,000-capacity Scholars Ground today to decide whether it meets the necessary safety requirements.
The British Gas Business Southern League Midlands Division side and the Football Association, however, are determined that the game will be played in the Staffordshire village.
Chasetown chief executive Mick Joiner said last night that the fixture could only be moved to a bigger ground if the safety authorities felt there would be no other option.
Venues in the surrounding area include Wolverhampton Wanderers' Molineux home and Walsall's Banks's Stadium but both those sides are already hosting third-round ties, with Wolves entertaining Cambridge United and Walsall facing Millwall.
Blue Square Premier outfit Burton Albion could be another option, with their Pirelli Stadium not in use that weekend and capable of accommodating the clash after hosting Manchester United at the same stage two years ago.
Chasetown, in the fourth tier of non-League football, are hopeful of getting the go-ahead to stage the biggest match in their history, surpassing the 2005 first-round clash with Oldham Athletic and Tuesday's night replay with Vale.
Club secretary John Richards said last night: "We haven't heard anything from the FA. As the official rules stand, we have to play the home games at home and we are preparing to accommodate Cardiff.
"Logic will tell you that we will have a better chance of winning if we play here and we intend to win every game we play. We're not thinking of an alternative venue unless a decision is made."
After missing out on a live television broadcast - and a financial boost of £100,000-plus - in their replay against Vale, Chasetown now hope the contest with Cardiff, who are managed by former Wolves boss Dave Jones, will become one of the featured matches on BBC TV's Match of the Day .
