Fans will have to wait a little longer for the hotly-anticipated Melton Town and Holwell Sports derby after Tuesday’s game was postponed.

A frozen pitch at Digital Deadline Park put paid to the County Senior Cup quarter-final tie which has been re-arranged for Tuesday, December 13 (kick-off 7.30pm).

The call was made less than an hour before kick-off after a referee’s pitch inspection.

Temperatures had dipped below freezing by late afternoon and plunged further during the evening.

The County Cup quarter-final will be the first meeting between the sides since the 2010 Melton Charity Cup final.

Only one of the evening’s quarter-finals survived with Lutterworth Town going through 5-1 at Aylestone Park.
