Palace-Leicester Cup date changed

FA Cup graphic

The FA Cup third-round replay between Crystal Palace and Leicester has been put back a day to Wednesday 14 January because of concerns about the pitch.

Palace say they need as much time as possible to ensure the Selhurst Park pitch, which has been badly affected by the freezing weather, is playable.

The first match finished in a 0-0 draw at the Walkers Stadium on Saturday.

The replay, which will decide which side will face Watford in the fourth round, kicks off at 2000 GMT.

The Foxes' League One fixture against Tranmere at Prenton Park has also been moved from 11 to 12 March.
