Fixture change for Forest Green

First published in Sport by

FOREST Green will now play Gateshead at The New Lawn on Saturday, February 16, instead of Dartford.

Dartford's 3-2 win over Halifax in the FA Trophy means their two-leg semi-final against Grimsby will take precedence on that date.

Forest Green will instead bring forward their Blue Square Bet Premier fixture against Gateshead, itself rescheduled for Tuesday, March 5 after the original game in early January was also postponed due to the visitors FA Trophy commitments.

Gateshead are currently sitting one place outside relegation in 20th position, but have a raft of games in hand having played only two league matches since the turn of the year, following their long-running cup saga with Barrow - where the match was postponed four times due to the weather.

They lost to Tamworth 2-0 on Saturday and face Ebbsfleet away and Kidderminster at home before coming to The New Lawn. A date for the rescheduled Dartford fixture is yet to be announced.
