PL strugglers Hull City are 'over the moon' with the result of their postponed fixture with leaders Chelsea at the weekend, says manager Phil Brown.
City's match was called of due to ice and snow, not on the pitch, but in areas surrounding the KC Stadium, which would have made travelling to and from the ground treacherous for supporters of both sides, particularly if they were absent-minded enough to not watch what they were doing, or if they were 2-year-old toddlers blissfully unaware of the dangers of the icy conditions.
Otherwise, they should have been OK.
Despite their inactivity Brown was full of praise for his players and backroom staff who, he said, had been "marvellous", and had shown "100% commitment to the cause".
"It's allus difficult going into a game like Chelsea on the back of an embarrassing 4-1 Cup defeat at Wigan, but I thought we bounced back well, and showed resilience and determination, not to mention patience when the game was called off. I thought we were worth at least a point, and hopefully we'll get it when the match is eventually played."
The Tigers are still in 19th position in the Premier League.
