Burnley Reserves league game against Liverpool has been postponed by the match referee due to excessive water on the pitch.
It had been thought the game would go ahead after a midday pitch inspection but it would appear that the surface water caused by overnight snow in the area had not been cleared in time for the game to go ahead
This is a pity with Burnley Reserves postponed fixtures piling up. They have managed just one home game at Accrington Stanley's ground this season and only seven on the road.
The club had already announced the team that would play too with two players currently in the news included in the starting eleven.
Fernando Guerrero was thought to be leaving the club after failing to impress new gaffer, Brian Laws but he was included along with Joey Gudjonsson.
Gudjonsson in the Icelandic press over the weekend had been reported to have fallen out with Brian Laws over not being selected for the eighteen that faced Bolton at the Reebok recently. He had also failed to travel with the squad for the team building and training exercise in Portugal last week but that was due to his wife just having had a baby
'Joey's going to get his head down and get on with it, like I would expect any of my players to,' Laws told the Lancashire Telegraph.
'Joey didn't go on the trip because he's just had a baby boy - his fourth - so he's had other things on his mind.
'There's been no such thing as a fall-out. It's just a matter of opinion. '
The full team was going to be:
Weaver, Eckersley, Kalvenes, McCann, Long, Jordan, Kay, Gudjonsson, Nimani, Paterson, Guerrero.
Subs: D MacDonald, Alex-Ray Harvey, C Anderson, B Hoskin, D Knowles
With the match now postponed, the debuts for Long and Weaver will now have to wait and it had been hoped that McCann would have got a useful run out with a view to him playing for the first team against Aston Villa this Sunday after recovering from his knee injury.
One also wonders if there will be any repercussions over yet another match postponed at the Crown Ground. It will be a huge disappointment for Clarets fans although it is expected that when the game is eventually played Liverpool TV will still be willing to cover the game.
