Altrincham FC are one win away from a trip to Wembley Stadium without a ball being kicked after a day of disruption in the National League.

The Robins received a bye in the play-off quarter-finals and are to take on Bromley FC in the play-off semi-finals at 4pm on Sunday (April 28).

They were to take on Halifax Town in one play-off eliminator tie (Altrincham FC v Halifax Town) after finishing fourth in the National League but the exclusion of Gateshead FC from the other play-off eliminator tie (Solihull Moors v Gateshead FC) saw The Robins through for finishing highest in the league.

The exclusion of Gateshead FC was the result of a failure to meet the entry requirements to EFL League Two.

A statement said: "Altrincham welcome the statement from the National League confirming play-off arrangements following the exclusion of Gateshead from the post-season. We will now travel to Bromley for Sunday's National League semi-final. 

"The game scheduled for Wednesday [April 24] against Halifax Town will not now take place with The Shaymen travelling to Solihull Moors.

"We would like to thank our fans who have bought tickets in record numbers since we launched the sales to Season Ticket holders at midday. 

"We will address the question of refunds but please give us a little time to get this organised and put into action."

Here is the play-off schedule:

April 24
Eliminator A - Solihull Moors v Halifax Town

April 27
Semi-Final 1 - Barnet v Winner Eliminator A

April 28
Semi-Final 2 - Bromley v Altrincham
