Doncaster Rovers’ game at Crystal Palace, planned for tomorrow, has been postponed.

The fixture was called off, although Rotherham United’s trip to League Two Southend, tonight, is expected to go ahead.

Palace said their frozen pitch was deemed unsafe for the Championship match.

The weather is taking its toll on the opening round of rugby league’s Northern Rail Cup on Sunday, too.

London Skolars’ home game against Toulouse has been called off because of snow and Swinton’s tie at York has been postponed due to the bad weather and pitch conditions.

The surface at the Huntington Stadium is covered by four inches of snow and, with temperatures not set to get much above freezing until Sunday, the City Knights say there is no chance of the pitch being playable in time.

The game has been provisionally re-arranged for Thursday, February 23.
