GATESHEAD FC have confirmed that Tuesday's Blue Square Bet Premier match against Newport County AFC will be played at the Gateshead International Stadium.

The club have arranged for most of their remaining home matches to be played at Hartlepool United's Victoria Park but Pools have a home game against Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday.

Gateshead have previously stated that the pitch at the International Stadium is 'unplayable' and have tried to find an alternative venue for the Exiles clash without success.
