Colchester United's game at Salford City been postponed due to a frozen pitch.

The referee carried out a pitch inspection this morning and made the decision, with temperatures set to remain below zero up to kick-off tomorrow.

Salford City wrote on their website: “Based on the Match Referee’s report and the zero/minus temperatures forecasted, the likelihood of the pitch being playable tomorrow is extremely low.”

A new date will be announced in due course.

It is the second successive weekend that Colchester have had a game called off.

The U's home clash with Tranmere Rovers was also postponed last Saturday, due to Covid-19 cases in both camps.

Colchester's next League Two fixture is due to be their home clash with Cambridge United, on January 16.
