Continuing sub-zero temperatures around the country have begun to take their toll on the calendar, with three football matches scheduled for Tuesday evening already postponed.
Cheltenham's npower League One match against Southend was first to go after an inspection at Whaddon Road revealed a frozen pitch - with the club's groundsmen already focusing on rescuing Saturday's meeting with Lincoln.
Next to be called off for the same reason was the Football League Trophy northern semi-final between Tranmere and Huddersfield and the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Southern Area semi-final between Bristol Rovers and Exeter was also a victim of the conditions.
Referee Steve Tanner ended hopes of playing after assessing the pitch and the game will now be played on December 7.
