PLYMOUTH Argyle's away game against Southend United tomorrow has been postponed because of a frozen pitch.
It follows an inspection of the playing surface at Roots Hall this morning.
The decision was taken early so the Pilgrims' squad did not set off on their trip to Essex.
It is the first time this season Argyle have had a game postponed.
New recruits Anthony Charles and Gozie Ugwu will have to wait until the home game against Accrington Stanley next Saturday for the chance to make their debuts.
Southend chief executive Steve Kavanagh said: "It's disappointing because we would have liked to have got the game on.
"Unfortunately the weather has meant the pitch has become frozen and it was deemed dangerous to play on.
"Of course we also had to take into consideration the long journey that Plymouth Argyle would have to make to get here.
"The weather is set to continue in the same vein today and on Saturday so the decision had to be made to postpone the game."
Kavanagh added a date for the rearranged game would be confirmed as soon as possible.
