The League One fixture will be scheduled for a later date after a frozen pitch forced a postponement of Tuesday evening’s game. The match was called off before 1pm and prompted a frustrated response from some Owls fans on social media, with many expressing a bewilderment at the Robins’ lack of undersoil heating.

Cheltenham are set to take on Port Vale this weekend and in an advertisement of tickets for the match-up, they couldn’t resist a jovial jab.

Preceded by a ‘winking’ emoji, Cheltenham tweeted: “Confident Saturday will go ahead now we've turned the undersoil heating on.”

The tweet kickstarted a reaction from a handful of Cheltenham supporters, with one claiming the account had ‘Sheffield Wednesday on strings’.
