Of the 11 League One fixtures scheduled for Saturday, four have fallen foul of the weather, with the games at Colchester, Crawley, Sheffield United and Shrewsbury being called off.

And in League Two, the picture is even worse, with six games falling foul of the conditions, at Bradford, Burton, Chesterfield, Port Vale, Rochdale and Rotherham.

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
