Director Chris Holland said that 1100 tickets are left for the game, all of which are in the Don Cass Community Stand.

Tickets go on general sale from 9.30 tomorrow morning, and are expected to be sold out by the end of the day as it is the first opportunity for fans who don't have a season ticket or were unable to get to the Bury game to get tickets.

Humberside Police will have a strong presence at the ground, and will ensure strict segregation of supporters.

"The police will be providing a very strong presence during to ensure everybody enjoys the football spectacle for what it is and those not interested in football are allowed to go about their daily business in the area without hindrance," said Insp Steve Page.

Many pubs in the town have decided to either shut or open for restricted opening times on the back of police advice.

The Old Famhouse, which is next to Glanford Park, will open as normal but will have police on duty in the car park. As usual, fans in colours will not be admitted.

The Berekley Hotel will also be shut, with most town centre pubs also shutting or employing extra security.

Fans without tickets will not be allowed into the ground, while those with tickets are advised to arrive early to avoid congestion.

The turnstiles will open at 1.30.
