Part of the Recreation Ground was plunged into darkness and the Championship match, due to get underway at 7.30pm, did not begin until 8.15pm.

The game is being broadcast live on TV and Premier Sports has said that, despite the delay, it will stick with it.

It is not the first time Whitehaven have had lights problems.

A Northern Rail Cup tie against Halifax in March 2011 had to be abandoned after a failure in the 13th minute.



Do you feel safe going to football matches?

1: Yes - there is hardly any trouble compared to the bad old days

2: No - sadly you will always get idiots who spoil if for rest

3: Depends - some clubs' fans are far worse than others
