Just give us the three points and save Gateshead all the hassle of actually playing the game, as it seems they have no intention of doing so.

Gateshead are a complete shambles - the conference should have made them nominate an alternative venue ages ago. How many months has their pitch been unplayable now? 4?

15 games left and 10 of them are away from home.That's a pretty tall order to finish the season with, especialy as 2 home games will be against tough opposition. so County will need all the support we can give them. Encourage all your friends to go along and cheer them on. Just wish I could be there myself.

10 away eh?

could be a blessing in disguise, no pressure of an expecting home crowd.

may take the pressure off and let county play their free flowing football.

disappointed about the gateshead postponement
