Lancaster City’s trip to New Mills was called off on Saturday due to a waterlogged pitch.

The Evo-Stik First Division North Clash was postponed after the Church Lane surface failed an early morning pitch inspection.

It means Darren Peacock’s side have lost three games to the weather so far in 2014 as they look to keep up the pressure on the sides at the top of the table.

City are due to host Ossett Albion at Giant Axe this Saturday, January 25.

Elsewhere, Morecambe were left frustrated as their game at Exeter was called off just over an hour before kick-off on Saturday.

A pitch that was fine at 1pm was rendered unplayable less than 60 minutes later as torrential rain arrived at St James Park.

The surface quickly became saturated with referee Andy D’Urso postponing the League 2 clash after an inspection.
