Sheffield Wednesday’s vital League One clash against coastal club Fleetwood Town was postponed this morning due to a waterlogged pitch at the Highbury Stadium after Storm Eunice wreaked havoc across the country.
Across the Football League, several fixtures have been postponed as heavy downpour from Storm Eunice ruthlessly flooded football pitches. Fleetwood’s Saturday fixture against Lincoln City was also postponed. Despite the best efforts of staff at Fleetwood Town, the pitch has not been able to recover from the barrage of stormy weather.
Located on the coast of Lancashire, Fleetwood has suffered from continually high winds and heavy rain since early Friday morning.
For Sheffield Wednesday, this represents the second fixture within the space of a week. Last Wednesday’s fixture against Accrington Stanley was also postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at Hillsborough stadium.
Wednesday’s fixture against Fleetwood Town would have represented an excellent opportunity for the Owls to push into the League One play off spots, with the Sheffield club currently sitting at 8th in League One.
