“We apologise for any inconvenience caused to AFC Fylde and Gateshead supporters.

“The fixture will be rearranged for a later date, with details to be communicated as soon as practical.

Tickets will remain valid for the new fixture with supporters unable to attend being entitled to a full refund.”

Results elsewhere meant the Coasters’ gap to the bottom four clubs was cut from eight points to six as Kidderminster Harriers won 3-1 at Chesterfield.
