Forest Green’s bid to extend their lead at the top of League Two was thwarted after Tuesday night’s match against Mansfield was abandoned because of heavy fog at the New Lawn.

Following an initial delayed kick-off until 8pm, the game was stopped after only four minutes.

Officials waited to see if conditions improved, with the players having been sent back to the dressing rooms, before the match was eventually abandoned at 0-0 shortly before 8.30pm.

The Mansfield game had already been postponed in December due to Covid cases in the Forest Green squad.

Rovers remain seven points clear of Tranmere and still have a game in hand.
