Tonight’s FA Women's Continental Tyres League Cup quarter-final away to London City Lionesses has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

London City Lionesses' statement said: "Following substantial and unprecedented rainfall in the area over the past 24 hours, it was agreed between both clubs that a pitch inspection would be carried out at 2.30pm today."

The final decision was made by match officials following a 2:30pm pitch inspection at Princes Park. The officials deemed the playing surface to be unsafe.

A rearranged date for the fixture will be communicated in due course.

Ticket holders will be contacted directly by London City Lionesses.
