Tamworth's stay in Gateshead has been extended by 24 hours due to the weather.
The game that was due to kick off on Saturday afternoon between 1st and 4th in the table will now be played on Sunday Jan 11 after a frozen pitch caused the initial fixture to be postponed at 12.30pm on Saturday.
And with the weather due to be considerably warmer both clubs agreed to re-schedule the game at short notice rather than cause further fixture congestion later in the season.
As a gesture of their continued fantastic support the supporters who travelled on the official coach have been offered free travel to tomorrow's game with the coach departing The Lamb at 8.30am.
This update is being made from the coach returning back to The Lamb heading down the M1 etc. with all supporters in a good mood despite the obvious disappointment.
Most of those who are making the journey back today on the official coach have taken up the free travel offer with those unable to make the 'return' trip being offered a 'credit' for future travel.
Next update on this site will be from Gateshead on Sunday afternoon all things being equal.
