YORK City's home game with Hereford has been called off due to impending weather conditions and subsequent safety concerns.

The fixture is one of a number league-wide to fall victim to the weather.

A tweet from the club's account read: "After speaking with Hereford and reviewing the league guidance, we have agreed that the game should not go ahead today due to the extreme weather conditions and travelling supporters' and players' safety in mind."

There is no date set for the rearranged fixture, which is likely to take place on a Tuesday.

Storm Dennis is expected to bring worse weather than Storm Ciara and the Met Office has issued an amber warning for York, with very heavy rainfall anticipated around lunchtime. Other parts of the country have been warned of a danger to life.
