The fuel crisis forced the postponement of Bristol City's Second Division match at home to Brentford last night, while a clutch of young athletes could be robbed of an opportunity to win places in the World Junior Championships.

The fuel crisis forced the postponement of Bristol City's Second Division match at home to Brentford last night, while a clutch of young athletes could be robbed of an opportunity to win places in the World Junior Championships.

The Bristol City match was called off because enough stewards to ensure crowd safety could not get to the Ashton Gate ground. There is also the threat of cancellation hanging over a specially arranged fixture at Bath University, which was intended to give the Great Britain and Northern Ireland under-20 athletes a final chance to win places for the World Junior Championships in Chile next month.

At Old Trafford, Manchester United are expecting to see empty seats tonight for their European Champions League match against Anderlecht. A clutch of last night's minor football games were postponed.
