CLITHEROE'S match against FC United was abandoned tonight after the floodlights at Shawbridge failed.

More than 2,000 supporters were at the Unibond League game when the lights went out midway through the second half.

After a lengthy delay to try to fix them, the referee had no option but to call the game off.

The sides were drawing 1-1 at the time.

Clitheroe now face an investigation by the league.
