OXFORD United's rearranged FA Cup tie at Gateshead tonight is expected to go ahead as normal despite bad weather in the build-up to the game.

High winds and driving rain battered the north-east overnight and this morning as part of the stormy conditions affecting much of the country.

But Gateshead's pitch, which was waterlogged when the first round replay was originally scheduled last month, was covered and is reportedly in good condition.

No inspection is planned and conditions are easing on Tyneside, so the game is set to take place.

Please Mr Lengan,sign up the Gateshead manager. It would be nice to see Oxford playing passing football full of confidence, like Gateshead do.
