Blackpool vs United is OFF :(
Following ongoing discussions between the Premier League, Match Officials and Manchester United it was agreed match referee Peter Walton would inspect the Bloomfield Road playing surface on Friday afternoon.
After consulting with the groundsman and club officials the Northants based official travelled to the Fylde Coast and inspected the playing area at the stadium.
Mr Walton expressed concern that the severely affected areas of the playing surface would not thaw sufficiently for the game to be completed.
The Premier League and officials at Manchester United were kept fully updated with the ongoing situation at Bloomfield Road.

Blackpool game tomorrow called off due to the frozen pitch, so gutted tweeps.
