Five inches of snowfall by mid-afternoon on Tuesday meant their clash at Oldham was postponed for the second time.

The in-form Glovers had travelled north with just goal difference keeping them out of the League One play-off places.

Johnson told the Western Morning News: "To be honest, (assistant manager) Terry Skiverton and I went to the stadium when they were clearing the pitch. At 2pm, an hour after the earlier inspection, the snow came down again. It was very slushy up there.

"The reason why I'm frustrated is because, the two times that we could have got ourselves into the play-offs, the game has been cancelled. We have missed out on playing both Preston and Oldham.

"We are disappointed, and if this happens too many more times we are not going to have too many weeks left in the season."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
