Irish Premiership: Lisburn Distillery v Portadown postponed

New Grosvenor

Tuesday's Irish Premiership game between Lisburn Distillery and Portadown has been postponed because of a waterlogged pitch at New Grosvenor.

Persistent heavy rainfall left the pitch in a poor state despite the efforts of the club's groundstaff.

The match has now been called off four times and the clubs will try again to fulfil the fixture on Wednesday night if the surface is deemed playable.

The teams are scheduled to meet at the same venue on Saturday.

Lisburn Distillery are battling against relegation while Portadown retain only slim hopes of a top six spot ahead of the impending league split.

The match between the two sides was previously scheduled to take place on 22 December, 15 January and 22 January, but inclement weather put pay to the fixture on each occasion.

Tuesday night's other Premiership game between Glentoran and Dungannon Swifts goes ahead as planned.
