Carlisle United's clash with Workington Reds in the Fred Conway Cumberland Cup has been postponed.

A pitch inspection at Borough Park this afternoon saw Reds' pitch deemed unplayable.

The west Cumbrian club had hoped to get the game on despite the recent freezing conditions.

But the county senior cup quarter-final tie will now have to be rearranged.

Both Carlisle boss Paul Simpson and his Reds counterpart Danny Grainger had planned to involve a number of their first-team squad members in the last-eight game.

Defender Ben Barclay was among those under consideration for an outing for the Blues.

The fit-again Stockport County loanee must now wait to make his comeback.
