Crawley Town --- Portsmouth- Match Report

Crawley's clash with Portsmouth postponed

Crawley's home clash with Portsmouth has been postponed due to a frozen pitch.

An inspection was carried out at 9am by referee Kevin Johnson and the surface was deemed unfit to play.

Crawley's operations director Kelly Derham told the club website: "We're absolutely devastated to lose our first game since 2014 but the elements have beaten us unfortunately.

"The pitch is well grassed but the frost has got into the ground and the southern end was a particular concern for the referee, who has the safety of the players as his priority.

"We had hot-air blowers working on that area on Friday and through the night but unfortunately it wasn't enough."
