The game at The Valley will now go-ahead on Tuesday night at 7pm after both clubs inspected their respective schedules.

Neither side were due to play a midweek game next week – so an agreement was quickly reached to try again in three days’ time.

Today’s match was cancelled an hour before kick-off following a pitch inspection, with the playing surface waterlogged.
