Sunderland vs. Reading EPL match postponed

BY foxsports • August 25, 2012

Sunderland's Premier League match on Saturday against Reading has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

The northeastern club says on its website there was ''torrential rain across Wearside overnight and throughout Saturday'' at the Stadium of Light.

Referee Neil Swarbrick called the game off following a pitch inspection. A new date has not yet been announced.

The postponement means Reading fans will have made a 960-kilometer round-trip from the south without seeing their side play.
