Fleetwood Town will have home advantage in the deciding leg of their Johnstone's Paint Trophy Northern Area Final.

Steven Pressley's side will face Barnsley over two legs with the winner earning a spot in a Wembley final.

Fleetwood booked their place in their second Northern Area Final in three years with a 2-0 victory over Morecambe at Highbury on Tuesday night - David Ball and Jimmy Ryan the goalscorers.

The first leg, at Oakwell, is pencilled in for Tuesday January 12 while the Highbury fixture is likely to take place on January 26.

With Fleetwood and Barnsley both out of the FA Cup there is a chance the first clash could be moved to Saturday January 9.

Town reached the same stage of the competition two-years-ago, losing out to Chesterfield over two legs.
