DARLINGTON’S match against Shildon tonight has been postponed – and the club fear that they will lose yet another game to the weather this weekend, WRITES CRAIG STODDART.

With more than six inches having fallen on top of a frozen Heritage Park pitch, Quakers yesterday made a decision to call off tonight’s game – their third successive postponement.

They have not played since the January 5 win at South Shields, but with temperatures not expecting to increase before Saturday, the visit of Celtic Nation to Heritage Park is also under threat.
