Tottenham Hotspur's Women's Super League clash with Bristol City tonight (10th February) has been postponed due to a frozen pitch. 

The game scheduled for the Hive failed a pitch inspection on Wednesday afternoon after Barnet's match with FC Halifax Town on Tuesday evening was also called off due to the pitch issues. 

A Tottenham Hotspur statement read "Our home fixture against Bristol City at the Hive today has been called off due to a frozen pitch.

"The Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture was due to kick off at 7.30pm, however following an early pitch inspection, the pitch was deemed unsafe for players.

"Information about a rescheduled fixture will be announced in due course."

On the postponement Skinner said: "I'm really disappointed that we can’t host Bristol City this evening.

"The challenges we have faced with the volume of cancellations - all for different reasons, won’t stop us coming back ready after the international break, ready to get back to winning ways for the fans."
