Hartlepool United fans have responded to news that there will be a pitch inspection at Halifax Town on Tuesday afternoon.

Pools sit second in the table following their 1-0 win over Sutton United.

Here’s how fans reacted to the news on social media…

Michael Spindloe said: “In the words of Cilla Black, ‘surprise surprise the Halifax pitch is freezing before our eyes’.”

@durhamchris1983 posted: “Need to start and consider playing this game somewhere else. You could see last time when Challinor was interviewed their covers were inadequate with holes in them.”

The North West Corner sarcastically commented: “Has a game ever been called off at Halifax before?”

Adam Pinder wrote: “Here we go again just don’t bother setting off lads.”

@hallydesigns questioned: “Why dont they just play the match earlier in the day?”

James Hepple tweeted: “Water is wet Halifax running scared again.”

Ben McCann said: “You couldn’t write this, they’re going for the hat trick!”

Callum Hope commented: “Could make a Netflix documentary about this game. Part 3 coming up. To be fair though the forecast is snow and minus degrees all day so for a change it probably will be off with good reason.”

@_CJenkins95 tweeted: “I give up with this fixture.”

@___Beann posted: “Shall we just do a sweepstake of what time they’ll call it off? 18:17pm”
