Reacting to the cancellation, Walsall boss Mat Sadler told BBC One: "As soon as I walked out here I thought the game would be off. It's rock-hard and not getting any warmer.

"I know they left it as late as possible to see if it could be played, but it looked dangerous to me.

"I think common sense has prevailed on that one. The game was never going to be played as soon as the covers came off, the goal mouths were rock hard.

"Right decision to have been called off."
