TOWN JUNIORS' Youth Cup-tie at Darlington last night was called off.
An inspection late yesterday afternoon found the pitch still frozen and officials had no alternative but to postpone this second-round match.
Officials from both clubs were quickly in action following the postponement, and the match has now been re-arranged for Saturday with a 1.00 kick off.
Coaches John Dungworth and Graham Mitchell will be looking to select from the same squad, and there could be better news on Daniel Racchi.
The young full-back was ill yesterday, but with an extra few days now to recover he could be ready to take his place in the Town line-up.
The incentive for the winners is a trip to Filbert Street to take on Football League Championship club Leicester in the third round.
Academy manager Gerry Murphy said: "It's disappointing it was off but we'll be ready for Saturday."
Squad: Eastwood, Racchi, Clarke (Tom), Berrett, Skarz, Malcher, Wilson, Bailey, Hallam, Biddle, Highley, Smithies, Oakley, Broadbent, Roberts, Templeton.
