Carrick’s game against Dungannon Swifts, scheduled for Tuesday evening, has been postponed.

A pitch inspection took place at Taylor’s Avenue 3pm when it was decided that the fixture would be put on the back burner for the second time this month.

Heavy rain in the East Antrim area prompted the call for an official to cast an eye over the playing surface.

The match had been billed as a ‘must-win’ by Rangers midfielder Barry Johnston with the men in Amber still searching for their first league win since September 12, and a first home league victory of the campaign.

Rodney McAree’s Swifts have lost their last seven - and trail Rangers by three points in the table.

A Northern Ireland Football League spokesman said: “A new date will be communicated in due course.”
