Stevenage's hopes of going top of the League Two table with victory over Swindon Town have been shelved after the game at the County Ground was postponed early.

Boro were due to go to Wiltshire tomorrow (Tuesday) for a 7.45pm kick-off.

But with temperatures forecast to hit zero by 5pm, and with only a few hours when the thermometer is above freezing, the decision to reschedule the game was made with 24 hours still to go to kick-off.

The statement from Stevenage on the club's website said: "A pitch inspection took place today in Wiltshire in which the match officials deemed the surface unplayable with inclement weather continuing into tomorrow.

"A new date for this fixture will be confirmed in due course, while all purchased tickets will remain valid for the rearrangement."

Stevenage's 3-0 win over Leyton Orient on Saturday had moved Steve Evans' men to within two points of the east London leaders.

The postponement, however, does mean that Boro will now get more chance to prepare for their FA Cup clash with Stoke City on Sunday.

The first game with Swindon was postponed because of the clash with Stevenage's now famous trip to Aston Villa.
