Sheffield Wednesday will not travel to Tranmere this Boxing Day after the match was postponed following a pitch inspection.

A local referee carried out the inspection at Prenton Park on Thursday morning and ruled that the pitch was unplayable.

Despite frost covers being on the pitch since last week, temperatures have been so low that the playing surface is frozen. A new date is yet to be decided for the fixture.
