Upton Park clash called off

Sunday's Premier League clash between West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers has been postponed due to safety concerns about the areas surrounding the Boleyn Ground.

The game had looked like being one of only three top-flight fixtures to escape the big freeze this weekend, but a Saturday morning inspection led to yet another call-off.

A short statement on the Irons' official website read:"West Ham United can confirm that Sunday afternoon's Premier League fixture with Wolverhampton Wanderers has been postponed.

"Adverse weather conditions have led to health and safety concerns in the area surrounding the Boleyn Ground, with the well-being of supporters the main priority.

"The decision was taken on Saturday morning after the Premier League consulted with local authorities and the police."
