Frozen pitch postpones Posh trip to Blackpool

Posh's match against Blackpool at Bloomfield Road has been postponed due to the freezing weather conditions.
After a win at home in the snow on Tuesday, Posh's match against Blackpool has been postponed

Peterborough United were due to kick off at 3pm on February 13 against Blackpool, but after an inspection of the Bloomfield Road playing surface the game has been called off.

A club statement from the Seasiders read: "The pitch at Bloomfield Road has been covered since Tuesday evening, with ground staff working tirelessly against the conditions and utilising blow heaters.

"However in light of the temperatures forecast overnight, the match has been called off on the basis that it will still be unplayable come kick-off time tomorrow.

"A new date for the game will be announced in due course."

Supporters who have purchased an iFollow match pass should note that it will remain valid for when the game is re-arranged.

A win for Posh could have taken them to the top of the table if other results went their way, but the team now won't be in action until Tuesday February 16, when they play Gillingham at the Priestfield Stadium. The enforced break could see them fall to fifth, if Portsmouth and Doncaster take points from their fixtures.
