Pompey’s Championship match with Hull today has been postponed because of a frozen pitch.
Following a pitch inspection at Fratton Park at 10am this morning, the referee was concerned with a frozen part of the pitch near the South Stand and deemed a further inspection at 10.30am was pointless.
Temperatures again plummeted below freezing overnight, with Bournemouth’s home clash against Exeter one of the first to be called off yesterday.
Covers had been used on the Fratton Park pitch this week to protect it from frost and Pompey were confident the game would go ahead last night.
More than 14,000 tickets had been sold by yesterday afternoon for today’s match.
A rescheduled date is yet to be confirmed.
Meanwhile, the Hawks’ Blue Square South match at Bromley has also been postponed.
