Hartlepool United's crucial League Two match at Notts County has been postponed.

An 11.30am inspection ruled the waterlogged Meadow Lane pitch unplayable following heavy overnight rain and then this morning.

It is the fifth postponement of the season for Pools whose fixture backlog has now grown.

Pools now have either three, four or five matches in hand on the sides at the bottom of the table.

Ronnie Moore's side went into today's programme on 24 points in 22nd place, just four points above the bottom two of Dagenham & Redbridge and York City.
