Irish Cup: Glentoran's replay against Armagh called off

Waterlogged pitch at the Oval

Monday night's Irish Cup replay between Glentoran and Armagh City has been postponed because the pitch at the Oval is waterlogged.

The game has been rescheduled for Saturday, 1 March, which is the day of the quarter-finals.

Armagh forced the replay by drawing 1-1 with the cup holders at Holm Park.

The postponement means William Garrett and Marcus Kane, both sent-off against Ards, are suspended for Glentoran's league clash with Linfield on Friday.

There are two other cup matches scheduled for tonight with Bangor at home to Warrenpoint in a replay, and Ballinamallard hosting Glenavon.

In the Irish Premiership, Dungannon Swifts are at home to Coleraine in a rearranged fixture. The match was given the go-ahead after an afternoon pitch inspection at Stangmore Park.
