Newport County have confirmed their Sky Bet League 2 game with Fleetwood Town on Friday night has been called off because of a waterlogged pitch.

Referee Steve Dunne had cast his eye over the surface at Rodney Parade on Friday morning and decreed it was unplayable for the contest due to take place in south Wales later that evening.

A tweet from Newport's official Twitter account read: "After a pitch inspection this morning the game tonight against Fleetwood Town has been called OFF."
