Following a pitch inspection, Mansfield Town’s Sky Bet League Two encounter at home to Sutton United - scheduled for Saturday 20 January - has been postponed due to a frozen pitch.

Frost covers have been in place on the pitch for ten days as part of the club’s efforts to protect the pitch from sub zero temperatures as well as industrial hot-air blowers.

Temperatures in Mansfield, however, have been as low as -7.

Following a pitch inspection by an EFL appointed referee the pitch has been deemed unplayable.

The club was mindful to call a pitch inspection as promptly as possible to notify home and away supporters of the outcome at the earliest opportunity.

A rearranged date for the match will be announced shortly. All tickets purchased for this fixture will remain valid for the rescheduled game.

Frost covers had been on Mansfield's One Call Stadium pitch for the past 10 days but, while they said industrial hot-air blowers were also used to thaw the pitch, it was not enough to deal with conditions that dropped to -7C in the Nottinghamshire town.
