Sunday’s Championship game between Luton and Millwall is OFF.

This comes despite the Hatters calling on their supporters to come down to Kenilworth Road in a bid to clear the snow from the pitch.

In a statement, Luton said: “Following a pitch inspection conducted by an EFL match official, and with the weather conditions forecast between today and Sunday morning, the Hatters’ Sky Bet Championship fixture against Millwall has been postponed.

“We would like to thank all supporters who had been in touch following our request for volunteers to help clear the snow from the Kenilworth Road pitch on Saturday morning.

“Your offers to help have been so much appreciated, but now will not be required.

“Any rearranged date for the fixture will be confirmed when agreed between the two clubs and the EFL, with information on arrangements for tickets purchased shared in the coming days.

“Please keep warm, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you here on Boxing Day for the visit of Norwich City.”

In League One, Peterborough’s home game with Shrewsbury has also been postponed following an inspection on Friday.

But League Two has been hit the hardest, with five of the 12 games already called off and potentially more expected to follow.

Games at AFC Wimbledon, Hartlepool, Northampton, Stockport and Tranmere have all fallen to the freeze.

In better news, Northampton have already confirmed in a statement that their home meeting with Carlisle has been rearranged.

The fixture will now be played on Tuesday 20th November, kicking off at 7.45pm.
