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.
