COLCHESTER United’s match at Hartlepool United tomorrow has been postponed following a pitch inspection this morning.

Local referee Neil Sharp called off the League One fixture, due to heavy snow and freezing temperatures. The Victoria Park pitch has been covered by three inches of snow all week.

The U’s game is just one of several League One games already postponed.

These include another of the relegation battles, Scunthorpe v Portsmouth, plus lowly Bury’s home game against Stevenage, and Crawley’s match against Carlisle.

No new date has yet been arranged for the U’s trip to Hartlepool.
