Peterborough United say pitch okay ahead of Hull City clash
PETERBOROUGH United will assess the state of their London Road pitch today as they attempt to beat the freezing temperatures threatening tomorrow's visit of Hull City.
Update, 12.30pm: Peterborough have declared the pitch is playable, but snow tonight remains a concern. A further inspection will be held tomorrow.
The Championship clash is in obvious danger with the forecast of snow showers and groundfrost predicted to begin this evening and continue into tomorrow morning.
With no under-soil heating installed at London Road, the only protection available is from insulation sheets that have covered the playing surface since Tuesday.

Such provisions will struggle to fight off a deep freeze and ground-staff will make an early inspection today to gauge if there is any hope of the game going ahead.
Peterborough were unable to beat the wintry conditions when they last wreaked havoc 11 months ago.
The visit of West Ham United last February saw volunteers help clear the snow but a frozen pitch eventually led to the game being postponed.
Should City's trip to Peterborough fall victim to the weather, next week's FA Cup tie with Barnsley will be the only fixture before facing Millwall away on February 2.
