FA Cup replays postponed due to frozen pitches

Tuesday's FA Cup second round replay between Carlisle United and Gillingham has been postponed.

Carlisle announced on their official Twitter feed that a frozen pitch at Brunton Park had caused the tie to be called off.

The pitch had been covered since last Friday.

The clubs drew 1-1 in Kent 10 days ago, with the replay winners facing a third round clash at home to Sheffield Wednesday next month.

Also falling foul to the cold snap was Tuesday's second round replay between Crewe and Blackburn at Gresty Road which has been put back 24 hours.

The League Two club tweeted: "Due to adverse weather conditions, our @Rovers #EmiratesFACup replay will now take place tomorrow night. #CreweAlex v #Rovers, Weds 13 December, 7:45pm."
