Chester's Bank Holiday Monday clash with Hereford has been postponed due to the ongoing issues at the Deva stadium.

It is the club's third fixture to be postponed in the last fortnight after heavy rain caused water damage to the ground's control room, PA room, media room, corridors and walkways.

With the issues still unresolved, the club have taken the decision to shelve the National League North fixture.

A statement issued by the club on Tuesday said: "Due to the continuing issues affecting basic power supply and electronic safety equipment within the stadium at Chester FC and despite efforts to return the stadium to an operational and safe mode in time for the Bank Holiday Monday fixture versus Hereford FC, in the Vanarama National League North, it has reluctantly been postponed to a date to be arranged."

"Consultation was taken throughout with regards to this decision with the local Safety Advisory Group, The National League and both clubs along with a number of possible alternative arrangements being eventually discounted due to match management staffing, policing and safe stewarding levels, which would have been necessary to stage this specific fixture elsewhere at short notice."
