The Sun have revealed that Tottenham’s clash away at Brighton on October 8 is at the risk of being postponed after the latest set of rail strikes were announced.

The RMT union have reportedly communicated that more than 40,000 workers at Network Rail and 15 train operators will take industrial action on October 8.

The Sun claim that this could impact all sporting events across the country during that weekend, including the Premier League and EFL fixtures.

The report states that Tottenham’s trip to the Amex Stadium is the fixture which is ‘most at risk’ of being pushed back due to the strike.

Other fixtures, including Bournemouth vs Leicester, Chelsea vs Wolves, Manchester City vs Southampton, and Newcastle vs Brentford, are also under threat of being postponed.

The Sun add that the Premier League chiefs are keen to avoid any further postponements after a number of matches were called off over the past couple of weeks due to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II and some fixtures shelved ahead of the state funeral.

Let’s hope that the Premier League are able to work out a solution as any further postponements would lead to a substantial fixture pile-up in the second half of the season. Given the busy schedule this season, any postponed games will likely have to be pushed back to January at the earliest.
