King's Lynn Stars' home derby clash against rivals Peterborough Panthers this evening has been postponed due to a waterlogged track.

The decision was made at around 1pm this afternoon due to heavy rain fall in the last 24 hours – and even more being predicted by forecasters before tapes-up tonight.

It's the first Norfolk Arena call-off for Lynn this season and their second one of 2013. The Stars are set to return to action at Coventry on Friday, June 7.

A date for re-staging the Panthers' clash is yet to be confirmed.
