Wait continues for Cork City as Hurricane Ophelia forces game to be postponed

The club confirmed that the game would be rescheduled for Tuesday night.

Cork City’s players before kick off City need just one more point to clinch the league title.

CORK CITY’S WAIT to be crowned 2017 Premier Division champions continues as the brute conditions of Hurricane Ophelia has forced tomorrow’s fixture with Derry City to be postponed.

Speculation had surfaced all throughout Sunday as to whether or not the game at Turners Cross would go ahead as the threat of adverse weather conditions continued to rise, with Cork one of eight counties to be issued with a red weather warning.

The club confirmed on Sunday evening that the game had been called off, with the match rescheduled for Tuesday instead.

The postponement means John Caulfield’s side will have to wait until then to try and gain the solitary point they require to mathematically secure the title.

Last Friday night’s game away to Bohemians presented another chance for the league leaders to wrap up the title with a win, however a 0-0 draw at Dalymount Park meant champagne was once again put on ice.

Anything but a defeat in two days’ time against Kenny Shiels’ side will confirm their first league title since 2005.
