U’s game at Walsall called off

COLCHESTER United’s match at Walsall tomorrow has been postponed due to the wintry weather.

Following a lunchtime pitch inspection at the Bescot Stadium, referee Robert Lewis had no hesitation in calling off the League One clash due to a frozen pitch.

It is the second successive U’s match that has fallen victim to the weather, following the previous weekend’s postponement of the home game against high-flying Sheffield United, again due to a frozen surface.

John Ward’s men have not played for a fortnight, since recording a 1-0 win at Leyton Orient.

But there are high hopes that the U’s home game against Brentford, scheduled for Tuesday night, will beat the weather.
