HEAVY snow fall over night has led to sports cancellations - Sheffield United, Chesterfield and now Rotherham United’s home games are off.

The Blades big match against Brentford at Bramall Lane was to have kicked off at 12.45pm.

But after a pitch inspection this morning it was the first of our local games to be postponed.

Following heavy snowfall across North Derbyshire, this afternoon’s Chesterfield game against Plymouth Argyle was the next victim.

And Rotherham United’s game with Exeter City is now also off for safety reasons.

* Horse racing has also been abandoned at Doncaster today because of several inches of snow there. The William Hill Lincoln has been rescheduled to Saturday, March 30.
