EX-TOWN centre-back Lee Sinnott hopes to be finally celebrating promotion with Farsley Celtic tonight.
They head to former League club Workington for the UniBond League Premier Division play-off final.
Manager Sinnott thought his side were already in the Conference North as UniBond champions.
But all that changed when the FA forced a re-think over Spennymoor, who failed to complete their fixtures.
Instead of their record being expunged, all sides due to play them were awarded three points.
That put Hyde top of the pile, and left Celtic, whose squad includes former Town men Jon Dyson, Lee Duxbury and Mick Midwood, in the play-offs.
Whitby were beaten 1-0 to seal the trip to Workington.
