Villa's FA Youth Cup clash called off after M6 traffic chaos

Villa's FA Youth Cup clash at Peterborough is OFF.

The game, which was due to kick-off at 7pm at London Road, has been postponed due to traffic chaos on the M6 motorway.

In some cases, motorists have been forced to leave their vehicles after a chemical tanker caught fire.

The motorway has been closed in both directions between junctions two and four, the Highways Agency have confirmed.

This has affected the journey for both the team and the fans making their way to the third round clash.

The new date for the game will be confirmed at a later date.

Stay tuned to for more.

Villa won the Youth Cup in 2002 and were also runners-up in 2004 and 2010.

They will be looking to make up for last season's third round exit to Brighton & Hove Albion when the rearranged game goes ahead.
