Tuesday's League Two clash between Mansfield and Bury at the One Call Stadium has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Local referee David Plowright deemed the Field Mill surface unplayable following an inspection at 11am.

Groundsman Michael Merriman said: "Due to the torrential rain we had on Saturday, the pitch is absolutely wet through.

"The continued rain both overnight and this morning, along with the forecast that is predicting further heavy rain for the rest of the day, means that there was no chance this game could take place due to there being so much standing water."

It is the second successive game 22nd-placed Shakers, who are three points adrift of Mansfield in the table, have lost to the weather following Saturday's postponement at Accrington.

No new date has yet been set for the rearranged fixture.
