Oval groundsman Sammy Glover tried in vain to make the pitch playable
The Carling Premiership match between Glentoran and Linfield has been rearranged for Wednesday 9 November, with a 1930 GMT kick-off at the Oval.
The big Belfast derby was to be played on Monday night but was postponed after the referee adjudged that the pitch was waterlogged and therefore unplayable.
The decision to call off the Big Two encounter was made following a pitch inspection at 1600 BST.
The Glens beat Linfield when the teams met at Windsor Park in August.
