Today's Barclays Premier League matches at Wigan, Liverpool, Birmingham and Arsenal have all fallen foul of the weather, the clubs have confirmed.

Wigan's home match against Aston Villa at the DW Stadium and Liverpool's game against Fulham were both postponed due to heavy overnight snow.

Birmingham's clash with Newcastle joined them on the casualty list just before noon on safety grounds, and Arsenal's home fixture with Stoke was called off shortly afterwards "due to adverse weather conditions".

In the npower Championship, Cardiff's match against Burnley fell foul of the latest big freeze on Friday night following heavy snowfall in south Wales.

Portsmouth's game against Scunthorpe became the second Championship match of the weekend to fall victim to the snow - the south coast club's second postponement in two weeks after ice and snow accounted for their clash with Burnley.

It was later joined by Watford's game against Preston due to heavy snowfall at Vicarage Road.

Exeter's home game against Sheffield Wednesday was the last remaining game to survive in League One and Two.
