Braintree Town's FA Carlsberg Trophy First Round march at home to Havant and Waterlooville, that had been scheduled to be played on Saturday afternoon, has been postponed.

The game will now be played this coming Tuesday - November 27 - with a 7.45pm kick-off.

The club announced on Saturday morning that the Amlin Stadium pitch had been inspected by a local referee.

With the surface already heavy, with prolonged spells of rain forecast in the run-up to the scheduled 3pm kick-off and in agreement with the match referee, it was decided that the pitch would not be playable.
