Dates set set for rearranged Carling Cup semi-finals
Pitches at both grounds were playable but safety concerns were paramount
New dates for the Carling Cup semi-finals between Manchester City and Manchester United and Blackburn and Aston Villa have been announced.
Rovers will now play Villa on 14 and 20 January with the two-legged Manchester derby rearranged for 19 and 27 January.
The first match of the City-United tie and the second leg of Blackburn and Villa's semi-final will be live on BBC.
Although Eastlands and Ewood Park were playable, icy access routes forced the postponement of the original games.
Normally, the first leg of the all-Manchester Cup tie would have been rearranged for Wednesday 13 January, but City are already scheduled to play Blackburn in a televised Premier League game on Monday.
Rovers have changed the date of their Premier League match against Fulham, originally scheduled to take place on Saturday 16 February, to the following day to account for the new dates.
