Saturday's League One promotion clash between Sheffield United and Brentford has been postponed due to snow, a long with a number of other Football League fixtures.

Heavy snowfall across the country has hit the Football League schedule badly, with the match between Shrewsbury and Oldham Athletic also affected.

In League Two, Port Vale's home meeting with Aldershot was also wiped out, with groups of fans unable to clear the pitch as snow continued to fall.

Vale acknowledged the postponement on their website.

Chesterfield and Plymouth will also have to rearrange their fixture. So too will the games between Chesterfield and Plymouth, Burton Albion and Wycombe, Rotherham and Exeter and Rochdale and Southend.

Liverpool are set to invite non-League sensation Daniel Carr for a week-long trial.

The 18-year-old, who plays for south London side Dulwich Hamlet, has scored 23 goals in 23 games for his club this season.

He has been monitored by a string of Premier League and Championship clubs, and the Anfield side have made their move to secure the services of the promising teenager.

Having impressed Liverpool spies during his impressive campaign, the top-flight club now want to take a closer look at Carr.

It will be a major jump in class for the youngster, who plys his trade eight leagues below Liverpool.

Speaking earlier this season, Hamlet boss Gavin Rose said: 'We'd like to hold onto our boys to give us the best chance of competing in the league, which is so tight.

'If someone comes in for them at the end of the season then we would give them our blessing as a club.

'It's the normal attention from clubs but we're trying not to focus on that and concentrate instead on the boy progressing.'

Stephen Kelly signs for Reading

Ireland defender Kelly switches Fulham for Reading as Jol chases Huddlestone

Reading have completed the signing of right-back Stephen Kelly from Fulham – while Cottagers boss Martin Jol has admitted that he is interested in Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone.

Kelly was a main part of Jol's team last season but struggled for games this campaign. Fulham would not reveal how much the transfer fee for the Republic of Ireland international was.

The defender has become Reading's third signing in the January transfer window after the arrivals of Hope Akpan from Crawley and Daniel Carrico from Sporting Lisbon.

Jol said: 'We won't lose any other players. It's one single player who could go in this transfer window. Kelly is the only one.

'I thought it was good for him because he wanted to play. Last year he played all the games almost so I thought it was good for him to talk to Reading and they decided to take him and he decided to go there. I never say never but the players I want to keep here will be here after the 31st.'

Jol is still keen to strengthen his squad in the transfer window and clearly sees Fulham's midfield as an area he needs to improve.

He is still interested in defensive midfielder Derek Boateng, who is at Ukrainian club Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk and also Tottenham's Huddlestone, whom he has monitored for years.

The 56-year-old added: 'Over the last six years I had an interest in Tom Huddlestone but he was injured and then went to Stoke. I think he failed a medical there but I am not sure, so he went back to Spurs.

'If Tom is fit, he is always in the back of my mind but as I told you before, I won't speculate on names. I can't say Tom is not on my list because I like him.'

Dan Walker primed to replace Gary Lineker as Match of the Day presenter

Rising star: Dan Walker

One of the BBC's rising stars has moved in to pole position as a future Match of the Day presenter after being handed the job on a one-off basis later this month.

The future of the MOTD line-up has been the subject of much debate this season with some observers commenting that the format of the BBC's flagship highlights show is beginning to look a little jaded.

Now it has emerged that Football Focus presenter Dan Walker will sit in for regular host Gary Lineker a week on Saturday when the former England striker is absent for personal reasons.

Walker, aged 35, is highly-rated at the BBC, having come through the ranks on local TV before moving on to national prime-time slots a few years ago.

Having previously worked at the Olympics, Wimbledon, The Open, Ascot and the last World Cup, the Crawley Town fan is seen as one of the corporation's mainstays of the future and has been presenting Football Focus since 2009.

But Walker will not anchor the MOTD 2 highlights programme as the devout Christian refuses to work on a Sunday.

There is no suggestion that there is any threat to Lineker's position.

Lineker, who has been linked with BT's new sports channel after they paid 738m to screen 38 Premier League matches from 2013, remains highly thought-of by the BBC and most public discussion recently has been about the quality of the guest pundits.

League One review: Eddie Howe wins first game back at Bournemouth

League One review: Howe wins first game back at Bournemouth as Blades see off Preston

Eddie Howe's second spell in charge of Bournemouth began in fairytale fashion with a 3-1 victory over npower League One leaders Tranmere.

Howe left Burnley last week for personal reasons and returned to the club with whom he led to promotion from League Two in 2010.

The Cherries may yet be involved in a scrap to avoid dropping back down to the bottom tier but this result lifted them up to 18th and came after Jake Jervis had given Tranmere a 39th-minute lead.

But an own goal from Ben Gibson drew the hosts level in the 53rd minute and that was added to by Harry Arter (58) and Simon Francis (72).

Tranmere remain top but saw their lead reduced to four points by Stevenage, who were 1-0 winners at MK Dons thanks to a 27th-minute goal from Lucas Akins.

It was the same score in the meeting between Preston and Sheffield United, the third-placed Blades winning with a goal from Dave Kitson in the 43rd minute.

Crawley stayed level on points with United and they, too, claimed a 1-0 away win today, Hope Akpan netting in the 15th minute to condemn struggling Hartlepool to another defeat.

On a largely good day for the top sides, fifth-placed Notts County beat Coventry 2-1, Andre Boucaud (39) and Yoann Arquin (84) scoring before Richard Wood pulled one back three minutes from time.

Paulo Di Canio's Swindon had to settle for a 1-1 draw with struggling Scunthorpe. James Collins opened the scoring (18) but Aden Flint was sent off 33 minutes in and Karl Hawley levelled in the 56th minute.

Doncaster closed to within a point of the top six thanks to a 2-1 victory over Brentford, coming from behind after Jonathan Douglas had given the Bees a 45th-minute lead.

It stayed that way until David Cotterill levelled in the 74th minute and Billy Paynter grabbed the winner six minutes from time.

Rock-bottom Bury are the only team in the Football League without a win, and their fortunes did not improve today as they slumped to a 2-1 loss against Yeovil.

Bury were already down to 10 men following Zac Thompson's sending off when Byron Webster opened the scoring for the Glovers in the 34th minute.

And, although Dominic Poleon levelled 74 minutes in, they had parity for only two minutes before Sam Foley netted the winner.

Portsmouth are up to 11th after a 3-1 win over Shrewsbury in a game that burst into life in the second half.

Wes Thomas (55) and Izale McLeod (58) put Pompey two up, and no sooner had Marvin Morgan pulled one back (61) than he was sent off for serious foul play. McLeod made sure of the points with his second in stoppage time.

Oldham and Colchester were both on the march in midtable with 2-0 victories.
Matt Derbyshire (77) and Jose Baxter (83) were the heroes for Oldham against Leyton Orient while Craig Eastmond (25) and Jabo Ibehre (31) helped Colchester beat Carlisle.

Crewe were grateful for an injury-time equaliser from Chuks Aneke in a 2-2 draw with Walsall. Jamie Paterson (12) and Florent Cuvelier (26) had put the Saddlers two up before Mark Ellis (44) pulled one back.

Harry Redknapp link to Bournemouth job not denied by Eddie Mitchell

Chairman Eddie Mitchell is refusing to be drawn about suggestions Harry Redknapp could take charge of Bournemouth – even if just on a caretaker basis.

The npower League One club are looking for a new manager after parting company with Paul Groves and his assistant Shaun Brooks on Wednesday.

It came less than 24 hours after the 3-1 defeat to Crawley which sent the Cherries fifth from bottom, with just one win from 10 League games.

Former Tottenham boss Redknapp recently returned to the south-coast club – where he began his career in management in 1983 – in an advisory role.

Redknapp and former manager Eddie Howe, now at Burnley, are the early bookmaker favourites for the job.

But when asked whether Redknapp could take caretaker charge for Saturday's trip to Coventry, Mitchell told Hot Radio: 'We've spoken about the football club and the best way forward and Harry knows my feelings but I can't say much more than that.

'Harry is his own man and he's got the capability to manage at a club much higher than a League One club, but that's where we are at the moment.'

Redknapp has been linked with the likes of Southampton, Queens Park Rangers, Leicester and even the New York Red Bulls having left Tottenham duringt the summer.

The 65-year-old, however, did make a shock comeback with little-known Wimborne Town in a charity match in Dorset.

Redknapp stunned the non-league side with a rousing pre-match team talk before he took his place on the bench. The match was played to raise 8,000 for local Andy Culliford who suffers from Motor Neurone Disease.

QPR defender Max Ehmer has signed a contract extension that will keep him at Loftus Road until 2016.

The 20-year-old German has been at QPR since 2003 and progressed through the youth system, although he is yet to make his first-team debut for the Rs.

Ehmer has played on loan at both Yeovil and Preston and, after training with the first-team in pre-season, he is now hoping to make the step up into manager Mark Hughes' squad on a regular basis.

'I'm really pleased,' he told the club's offiicial website.

'It's an amazing feeling to be signing a new deal at such an exciting time in the club's future.

'This summer has been my first proper involvement with the first team and I've enjoyed every moment. I've been in and around the first team over the last few years and now I want to step that up a level.'

Ehmer was later joined in penning a new deal by Michael Doughty.

The 19-year-old has first-team experience thanks to loan spells at Woking, Crawley and Aldershot and has also been capped by Wales at Under-19 level.

Doughty was part of Hughes' first-team squad during pre-season and is delighted to sign a three-year extension to his contract.

'It's a great feeling,' he said. 'It's nice to know the manager wants me here as part of the long-term future.'

Referee Iain Williamson sent off five
players, including Mills, as the two sides swapped punches in the
minutes after Crawley’s 2-1 win.

Mills faces an instant three-match ban and could get a longer suspension.

McFadzean, who escaped punishment on the night, and Mills have until 6pm on Friday to respond.

The clubs have been charged for
failing to ensure their players and/or officials conducted themselves in
an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour.

They have until 4pm next Tuesday to respond.

Bradford’s Jonathan McLaughlin, Luke
Oliver and Andrew Davies and Crawley’s Mills and Claude Davis all
received red cards from Williamson.
The FA studied video footage of the punch-up before acting and Crawley
have promised to conduct their own internal investigation into the
fracas.

A statement read: 'Crawley Town Football Club are in receipt of the charges brought by the Football Association in respect of the incidents at the end of Tuesday's match against Bradford City.

'Chief executive Alan Williams is conducting a full investigation, which will include player statements, taking appropriate legal advice and will then respond to the respective charges within the timescales outlined by the FA.

'There will be no further comment from Crawley Town on this matter until investigations are complete and any hearings have taken place.'

Stoke City 2 Swansea City 0: Matthew Upson and Peter Crouch end Potters slide

Stoke City 2 Swansea City 0: Upson and Crouch put an end to Potters slide

Stoke brought a four-match losing run
in the Barclays Premier League to an end as first-half goals from
Matthew Upson and Peter Crouch earned them a comfortable victory over
Swansea.

Potters boss Tony Pulis made 11
changes from the side knocked out of the Europa League by Valencia in
midweek and he got the result he was looking for, with Upson heading in
his first goal for the club in the 24th minute before Crouch followed
suit from another set-piece 15 minutes later.

Scott Sinclair missed a glorious chance for Swansea in the opening two minutes and they had to wait until injury-time for another one, Asmir Begovic pushing Steven Caulker's header on to the bar.

Both managers made changes in goal, with Pulis giving Begovic his first league start in almost three months ahead of Thomas Sorensen, while the ill Michel Vorm was replaced by Premier League debutant Gerhard Tremmel for Swansea.

The teams' preparations could not have been more different, with Stoke playing both legs of the Valencia tie and an FA Cup clash with Crawley while Swansea, who won the reverse fixture 2-0 in October, took the opportunity to head off to Tenerife for a training camp.

Brendan Rodgers' side got their first glimpse of goal inside two minutes, and it was a very good one, Nathan Dyer breaking down the right and pulling the ball back for Sinclair, who skied his shot horribly over the bar.

Stoke immediately broke down the
other end and a long throw from Ryan Shotton was only half cleared to
Glenn Whelan on the edge of the box, and his shot was flicked on by
Crouch but well blocked by the Swansea defence.

After a lively start the tempo
dropped, but in the 24th minute the deadlock was broken as Upson powered
in a header from a Matthew Etherington corner as Tremmel chose to stay
on his line.

Swansea responded well and full-back
Neil Taylor was allowed to run virtually from the halfway line into the
heart of the penalty area before Upson produced a crucial block.

The visitors were monopolising
possession but lacked a cutting edge and they were undone again six
minutes before the break from another set-piece.

This time Shotton's long throw was
Stoke's weapon and Crouch had the simple task of nodding it in past the
despairing dive of Tremmel.

Stoke began the second half looking
hungry for a third and again it was set-pieces that were causing
problems for Swansea, although Tremmel did well to punch the ball away
after Crouch had headed an Etherington corner towards goal.

At the other end, Dyer, who had
looked Swansea's most dangerous player, curled a shot wide of the far
post but it was a rare break for Swansea and in the 55th minute Jon
Walters almost made it three.

Shotton's long throw again picked
out the head of Crouch, who beat Tremmel to the ball comfortably to
flick on but Walters could only place his header over the bar.

Stoke were pressing very high up the
pitch, not allowing Swansea's defenders any time on the ball, and even
when they did manage a spell of pressure they could not test Begovic.

Both managers made changes, Cameron
Jerome replacing Etherington for Stoke while Luke Moore and Josh
McEachran came on for Sinclair and Dyer for Swansea.

Shotton was having a fine game for
the hosts and curled in a superb cross that Walters probably should have
done better with than head wide of the near post.

Swansea pressed hard in the closing
stages but did not test Begovic until injury-time, when the Bosnia
international somehow managed to push Caulker's bullet header onto the
bar from Gylfi Sigurdsson's free-kick.

The victory, Stoke's first points in
the league since a draw with Liverpool on January 14, meant Pulis' side
climbed above their opponents and into 12th place in the table.
