Tranmere Rovers' home match against Harrogate Town this evening his been postponed due to stadium damaged caused by Storm Arwen.

The Whites were due to host the Yorkshire side in the Papa John's Trophy second round at Prenton Park, but the stadium has not been passed fit to host the match tonight.

It is the second fixture to be postponed at Prenton Park since high winds caused significant damaged to parts of the ground on Friday evening.

A statement on the club website said: "Despite the best efforts of specialists to resolve the damage from Storm Arwen, it has now been determined that tonight’s match cannot safely proceed.

"The main stand roof has been fixed but it has been determined that there is a remaining issue with the high level advertising in the Kop stand which is loose due to rivets having been ripped off in the wind. 

"As such, after a Safety Advisory Group inspection it is considered dangerous until it can be removed or re-riveted. 

"Despite specialist equipment being brought in to deal with it, continuing high winds mean the work cannot be completed today. 

"Whilst this desperately disappointing, everything that could be done has been done, we apolgoise for any inconvenience caused to supporters."

Rovers are next in action on Saturday, when they travel to Leyton Orient for the FA Cup 2nd round.
