Saturday's League One fixture between Northampton Town and Oxford United has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at the PTS Academy Stadium.

Heavy rain on Thursday, overnight on Friday and into Saturday led to referee Thomas Bramall calling the game off after a pitch inspection.

"The pitch is very wet and, as always, the safety of the players is of paramount importance," he said.

A new date for the fixture will be arranged in due course.
