The weather is the big opponent for Plymouth Argyle's match with Newport County.

The two sides' match on Tuesday night has been postponed because of a waterlogged pitch which is the 5th time this has happened to the Welsh side.

It is not hard to see why - here is what happened during Saturday's match at Rodney Stadium, which is shared with Newport Gwent Dragons and Newport RFC...

Speaking before the decision, Pilgrims coach Gary Owers admitted it's tricky to know what they're going into: "It's somewhere I've never been to. I don't really know what to expect. I've seen pictures of it on the television and clearly it's a stadium that was built for playing rugby. So, new surroundings, unfamiliar surroundings, but we'll go there and give them a game.

"All you can do is prepare as if the game is on."
