Wycombe Wanderers P-P Fleetwood Town

The League Two fixture between Wycombe and Fleetwood at Adams Park was postponed about 20 minutes before kick-off because of a frozen pitch.

Referee Andy Davies made inspections at 13:30 GMT and 14:00 BST following an overnight frost and wanted more time to assess the surface.

However, a decision to call the game off was made while the two teams were completing their warm-ups.

As yet, no new date has been set for the rearranged fixture.

Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"It's the referee's decision so we stand by it. I think he deemed the goalkeeping area as quite dangerous, and he saw a few of the lads struggling to stop and turn, so we go by that.

"It's part of the game and we live with it. Exeter is the next thing in our minds, and that's New Year's Day. We'll obviously get this one rearranged."

Fleetwood manager Graham Alexander told BBC Radio Lancashire:

"I think it's the correct decision. It's unfortunate it was so late in the day.

"The frost caught people by surprise and the measure that they've got to prevent that - the undersoil heating - wasn't switched on overnight.

"The pitch is too hard and it's not going to get any better. All concerned tried their best after the event of the overnight frost to try and get it on, but we were hoping against hope really."
