Durham and Leicester City’s top of the table blockbuster beaten by the weather

Durham and Leicester City’s top of the table clash has been postponed due to snow and ice in the North East.

The pair were due to meet at Maiden Castle at midday on Sunday but The Wildcats have this morning advised via their official website that the game will no longer go ahead with the pitch being covered in snow and a layer of frozen ice.

Both clubs are currently tied at the top of the FA Women’s Championship table with Leicester City boasting the better goal difference and a game in hand.

The two sides met at Farley Way in the reverse fixture back in October. Durham twice took the lead against Jonathan Morgan’s side but the hosts battled back and a 90th-minute goal from Lachante Paul ensured a share of the spoils for Leicester City.

Sunday’s game had promised to be a fascinating encounter with Leicester City coming up against the only unbeaten side in this season’s FA Women’s Championship. Durham boast the division’s meanest defence while they have beaten every side in the top six other than Leicester City this season.

A new date for the rearranged fixture will be agreed between the two clubs in due course.
