This live event has finished
Game will be staged now on Monday night. A 7.45pm kick-off. Nigel Worthington wanted Monday, Fleetwood wanted Tuesday. The Football League have sided with the home team.
The players are applauding the fans. It's all hugely disappointing. The new date of the game will be announced "as soon as possible".
Fans urged to retain their ticket stubs in order to gain admittance for that match.
The referee has postponed because of persistent rain throughout the day.
It looks very strongly like the game is off.
The ref is back out with his officials, kicking a ball around the areas of the pitch causing most concern.
Still loads of groundsmen on the pitch, with brooms, trying to get the water off the pitch. It's a real race against time now, though.

Has a Football League Playoffs match ever been called off before? Not sure how they'll fit in a rearranged game. #ycfc #league2playoffs— @soulwaxer 10 May 2014
Just spied the Southend manager Phil Brown doing a bit of recon work in the main stand. Will he have anything to watch?
Every time it looks like inroads are being made shifting all the water off the pitch, the heavens open again.
Another half hour of this hype, I think I'll pop. #ycfc— @discoduke22 10 May 2014
It's Raining Men is now being played over the tannoy #ycfc— @Thurloway 10 May 2014
It's not the ideal preparation for the players, given we were so close to kick-off, but if it means we can negotiate the full 90 minutes then it's probably for the best.
And just as I say that...
The PA announcer is putting an announcement out. Kick-off has been delayed until 8pm by the referee for "player safety".
The word is we are going to start, but if there is any significant rain during the game then we could be in trouble.
Not long now before kick-off.
The officials are having a look at another heavily waterlogged part of the pitch towards the away end. It's raining again too. The game is scheduled to start, but will it finish?
If you couldn't see the teams through twitter, turn your head to the pic below or:
York: Pope, Oyebanjo, McCombe, Lowe, Davies, Brobbel, Penn, Reed, Hayhurst, Coulson, Andrew.
Fleetwood (in squad no): Maxwell, Roberts, Pond, Schumacher, McLaughlin, Blair, Sarcevic, Taylor, Ball, Morris, Hulme.
Matty Blair, who has forced his way into the Fleetwood side in recent weeks, returns to Bootham Crescent hoping to inspire another Wembley run for his new side.
And the Cod Army have loads of talent on the bench, not least former York stalwart Jon Parkin.
So it is as we started the second half at Scunthorpe for York City. Will Hayhurst comes in for Lewis Montrose and we can expect to see a 4-4-2.
Hayhurst and Ryan Brobbel will be the two wingers with Adam Reed moving back into the middle of the park to partner Russell Penn.
Tonight's two teams #ycfc http://t.co/ESAPpJceL8— @scarrollPress 10 May 2014
I've just seen Ryan Jarvis try and kick a ball out of a particularly heavy strip of water midway inside one of the halves. It didn't go very far. This could be attritional stuff tonight.
The City players are out on the pitch and are given a big reception from the ever growing numbers in the David Longhurst Stand.
Match definitely starting.— @DaveStanfordSLO 10 May 2014
RT @scarrollPress: Here's an idea of how much rain has fallen - and is falling #ycfc http://t.co/XkhhmDgpjF— @KILVINGTONS 10 May 2014
RT @scarrollPress: There's been a pitch inspection here amid the pouring rain. Hopefully we will know more soon. #ycfc— @yorkpress 10 May 2014
York City goalkeeper Nick Pope is out working with Andy Collett by the Longhurst and the officials have walked in to the tunnel.
There's a huddle of officials going on at the far side of the pitch at the Popular Stand. It is absolutely lashing down here at the moment - and it's getting ever heavier.
It's wet and a pitch inspection here at BC. More rain due. Groundstaff been sweeping pitch for 4 hours.Top men #ycfc http://t.co/K1oJGyOz3R— @York13Man 10 May 2014
@scarrollPress Good luck this evening in York.— @Turfline 10 May 2014
Quite a lot of water is being taken off the wings here at Bootham Crescent. The rain is still coming down hard #ycfc http://t.co/5X9Orhz872— @scarrollPress 10 May 2014

Good evening from a wet Bootham Crescent where York City are taking on Fleetwood Town in the Sky Bet League two semi-final first leg.
It's been raining heavily throughout the day and, as we speak, groundsmen are out on the pitch taking standing water off the wings in the main stand side.
City manager Nigel Worthington and his men are on a superb 17-match unbeaten run. Can they ride that all the way to Wembley? Stay with me throughout the evening as we see whether York can take a giant step towards yet another great day under the arch.
