Sunderland's game with Accrington Stanley had to be postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Sunderland were due to face Gillingham at the Stadium of Light on Saturday, January 26, before Steve Lovell's side recorded a shock victory over Cardiff to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup.

For that reason, the game will now take place on Tuesday, February 19 (7.45pm kick-off).

A new date has also been confirmed for Sunderland's away trip to Accrington Stanley, after the game at the Wham Stadium was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch last month.
