Sunday's East Midlands derby hasfallen foul of the bad weather affecting the UK

Heavy overnight snow has caused problems surrounding Pride Park meaning that the fixture will be played at a later date.

Although the postponement has been made on safety grounds it is perhaps a blessing in disguise for a Nottingham Forest side affected by the shock announcement on Saturday of the death of Nigel Doughty, the club's owner and former chairman.
