Sunderland-Reading postponed due to heavy rain

25 August 2012 15:28

Sunderland's Premier League clash with Reading has been called off due to a waterlogged pitch at the Stadium of Light.

After a morning of torrential rain on Wearside, referee Neil Swarbrick made the decision to postpone the game about 90 minutes before kick-off.

The Black Cats were busy in the transfer window on Friday signing Steven Fletcher and Adam Johnson, with the decision denying the Scottish striker the chance of a debut against the Royals.

A statement on the north-east club's website confirmed that all tickets for the game would be valid for the rearranged fixture.

Reading announced via their Twitter account: "Nobody arguing with the decision, a sensible choice. Such a shame for our supporters - a massive thank you to all who travelled."

Black Cats midfielder Craig Gardner tweeted: "Gutted games off especially our fans and reading travelling 2 game roll on Tuesday now #itchingtoplay"

His team-mate David Meyler added: "Gutted the games off! Now let's get ready for Tuesday. #hawaythelads"
