Reading v Burnley. POSTPONED

Last updated : 06 January 2007 By Angus Muller

Reading's FA Cup third round tie against Burnley was postponed on Saturday due to a waterlogged pitch.

Following an inspection 10 minutes before kick-off, referee Rob Styles declared the pitch unplayable with the penalty area at the South Stand end under a large pool of water.

Heavy overnight rain, which showed no sign of easing as the start of the match approached, had also left other sections of the pitch under water.

Reading declared all tickets would be refunded or re-issued for Tuesday, January 9, the date announced for the rearranged fixture.
