Blackburn's npower Championship fixture against Brighton was the first match of the day in English football's second tier to be called off as wet weather disrupted Saturday's sporting programme.

The heavy rainfall affecting much of the country forced the cancellation of the Ewood Park clash due to a waterlogged pitch.

A post on Blackburn's official Twitter feed read: "Today's match against Brighton has been called off due to a waterlogged pitch. A new date will be arranged in due course."
