In case there was any doubt over the decision to postpone Braintree's FA Cup tie against Tranmere, take a look at the conditions at the non-league side's Cressing Road ground.
Tranmere manager Ronnie Moore admitted he was disappointed with the decision to call off his side's FA Cup First Round tie against Braintree.
"We've played on worse," Moore told ITV's Gabriel Clarke. "We wanted to play the game, that's the disappointing thing for us."
"I think the pitch would be okay, but it's safety reasons off the pitch that's the problem."
Feel sorry for the lads and fans travelling all the way down to Essex and all the game prep done for nothing !
There's a waterlogged pitch at Braintree's Cressing Road, which means today's live match is under threat of postponement. We'll update when a decision is taken on whether the match will go ahead.
