Grimsby TownFollowing a pitch inspection at the International Stadium tonight's Blue Square Bet Premier game against Grimsby Town has been postponed.

The pitch remains unplayable with more rain forecast today. The original game against Grimsby was postponed on 4th December due to an unfit pitch.

The postponement is the 5th at the International Stadium since the start of December due to drainage problems on a pitch that was re-laid in the summer.

Gateshead's next scheduled home game is an FA Trophy 3rd round tie against Barrow at the International Stadium on Saturday.

Before that the club will contest a 2nd round Durham Challenge Cup tie at local neighbours Dunston UTS on Wednesday.

Tomorrow night's game at the UTS Stadium against the FA Vase holders kicks-off at 7:30pm.
