Bristol's first round Carling Cup match with Swindon is the latest fixture to be called off in the wake of widespread rioting throughout the UK.
Although rioting was initially confined to London, last night the violence spread to Birmingham, Liverpool and Bristol. Subsequently the police requested that the game with Swindon be called off.
"It's disappointing but we totally understand the reasons given by the Police," said Bristol City chairman Colin Sexstone. "Clearly the most important factor is people's safety and these are exceptional circumstances the Police are dealing with."
The club added that it would discuss rescheduling the fixture "at the appropriate time".
