Ipswich Witches’ clash at Sheffield tonight was called off after rain hit the Yorkshire circuit at around 7pm.

Both teams waited 30 minutes past the official start time of 7.30pm to see if the rain would clear, but to no avail.

It was the second time in 48 hours the two sides had failed to take to the track after the meeting at Ipswich was called off last night.

For both sides it is very frustrating, especially as both are Thursday night tracks.

The Witches are next in action on Sunday, when they travel to Scunthorpe for a Championship fixture.
