Portsmouth P-P Man City

Portsmouth's Premier League game against Manchester City has been postponed because of a frozen pitch.

Referee Mike Dean called the game off after inspecting the Fratton Park surface and ruling it unfit.

Pompey had placed 12 diesel heaters on the pitch during the week in an effort to ensure the game went ahead.

But their efforts ultimately proved in vain after overnight temperatures dropped to -7 and the clubs will now have to find a new date for the game.
