Wrexham's FA Cup third-round replay against Brighton has been postponed for 24 hours because of a frozen pitch.

An early morning inspection on Tuesday ruled that The Racecourse pitch was unplayable.

Wrexham hope to play the tie on Wednesday with a 1915 GMT kick-off with all original match tickets still valid.

The Blue Square Bet Premier leaders earned the replay after they held Brighton to a 1-1 draw at Brighton's Amex Stadium.

"This [the Wednesday replay] is yet to be fully confirmed, but with a big swing in the temperatures due on Tuesday night, confidence is high for play on Wednesday night," a statement on the Wrexham website said.
