The fixture which was to start at 17:00 EAT was called off at 16:10 EAT due to heavy snow.

“I can’t see how it could go ahead the way the pitch is at the moment,” Burnley manager Sean Dyche said.

“It fell that quick and heavy. It’s still quite strong now. [The pitch] can’t get rid of the snow that quick.”

He added: “As you can see the pitch re-covers every time they clear it. The referee explained the safety angle as well so it was important to make a decision early.

“It’s the lines being cleared as well – we would have to stop and clear them. It’s a joint decision with everyone concerned.

“We were ready for the game and I made it clear if it could be played we wanted it on – as did their manager.”
