The Premier Academy League Group D top of the table clash between Newcastle and Barnsley's under-18 teams has been postponed.

With the Magpies in FA Youth Cup quarter final action on Monday, 27th February, that has taken priority over the league fixture scheduled two days earlier.

No new date has been arranged at present.

Dave Watson's side are currently top of the table with the Tykes in second following their 3-0 win over Huddersfield.

When the two teams met at Oakwell in October, honours were even as Adam Campbell cancelled out Sam Patterson's opener.
