Burnley Game Off

Last updated : 08 January 2010 By Dan Buxton

Stoke's Premier League game against Burnley ha been called off due to the snow and ice around the ground.

Turf Moor has been plagued, like the rest of the country, by deep snow for the past ten days and the local police decided it was too dangerous to have the game go ahead and have 20,000+ people risk injury.

The Potters will be disappointed as they were be looking to build on their two victories this week and hoped to take advantage of the fact Clarets manager Owen Coyle left for pastures new this week and the fact the home side hadn't won a league game since October.
