Colchester United's game at Peterborough United has been postponed.

The London Road pitch failed an inspection this afternoon, with the surface saturated following the heavy rainfall over recent days.

Joe Dunne's side have not played a competitive match since beating Carlisle United 4-2, on January 18.

However, the U's boss is trying to arrange a friendly for his first-team squad, this weekend.

Dunne said: "It's frustrating but unfortunately, you can't change the weather.

"Peterborough did everything they could but the rain has played havoc with a lot of matches and I'm pretty sure it won't be the only game to go.

"These things happen and we have things in place to deal with it."
