Gateshead will be playing for survival when they take on Ebbsfleet as the Blue Square Bet Premier enters its final day
Here's a look ahead at tonight's games involving teams from the North East
Pitch problems have forced the Heed to seek an alternative venue to host their matches
Gateshead Football Club have been given their fixture list for the new season.
They'll open up their Blue Square Premier Campaign away at Kidderminster next month.
The Tynesiders have lost their top scorer this summer.
But they might have found the perfect replacement.
Simon O'Rourke reports.
Gateshead's Blue Square Bet Premier clash at home to Kidderminster Harriers tonight has been postponed.
It's the tenth match at the International Stadium to have been called-off in the last three months due to ongoing problems with the pitch. A new drainage system which was installed last summer has failed, leaving the playing surface waterlogged.
The Heed's next scheduled home game is against title chasers Wrexham on Tuesday 19th February. Club officials say if the pitch is still unplayable by then, an alternative venue in the North East will be arranged to stage the tie.
Gateshead Football Club confirmed this morning that they had sacked their manager.
Ian Bogie had been in charge at the International Stadium for more than six years and he led the club to two promotions during that time.
Bogie lost his job after a poor run of form this season, which has seen Gateshead drop into the bottom half of the Blue Square premier league.
