Blizzards and plummeting temperatures across the UK have already claimed a number of the weekend's football fixtures, with more set to follow later in the day.

The Coca-Cola Championship match between Scunthorpe and Ipswich has been postponed, with the fixtures between Blackpool and West Brom and Cardiff and Leicester subject to checks at 10am and 11.30am respectively.

In League Two, Darlington v Northampton and Rotherham v Dagenham and Redbridge are off, and Port Vale v Chesterfield (10am) and Rochdale v Shrewsbury (10am) are set for inspections.

The Scottish Division Two match between Dumbarton and Alloa will also have a 10am inspection.

The fixtures already postponed were Colchester v Carlisle in League One and Aldershot v Bradford in League Two.

Friday night's League Two clash between Hereford and Lincoln was also postponed, while six of this weekend's Blue Square Premier matches are already off.
