The previous game on Tuesday, 18th January, was abandoned after just four minutes of play due to heavy fog.

The kick-off was delayed by 15 minutes, but the fog began to lift and the two in-form promotion rivals wanted to play. However, the fog swirled back in again and, despite a 20-minute wait, they were unable to restart the match.

Tickets from that night will be automatically valid for the rearranged fixture.

The EFL have confirmed that match passes bought via iFollow Stags will be automatically renewed for the rescheduled game.
