Sheffield United P-P Scunthorpe United

Bramall Lane
Referee Mark Heywood called the League One match off on health and safety grounds

Sheffield United's League One fixture against Scunthorpe scheduled for Sunday has been postponed following adverse weather conditions in Yorkshire.

Referee Mark Heywood deemed the pitch playable but said access to Bramall Lane was unsafe, with snow and ice in the surrounding streets.

"I'm calling the game off on health and safety grounds," Heywood said.

The pitch was covered with almost four inches of snow, but ground staff had worked to clear the surface.
