U’s game one of several to be called off
COLCHESTER United’s scheduled home game against MK Dons was called off following a pitch inspection this morning.
Referee James Linnington made the decision due to snow on the playing surface, and also the promise of more snow to come during the afternoon.
The League One match between two of the U’s relegation rivals, Shrewsbury and Oldham, has also been postponed.
Other fixtures to be called off early were at Sheffield United and Crawley.
