The following weekend's away fixture against Bolton Wanderers, originally scheduled for Saturday 16 January, has also been postponed due to the Trotters' involvement in the FA Youth Cup fourth round on Thursday 14 January.
The young Reds haven’t played since 10 December when goals from Paul Pogba and Nicky Ajose sent Birmingham City out of the FA Youth Cup.
United's fourth round clash in that competition is now next on the calendar for Paul McGuinness’s side, with the U-18s due to face Burnley on Wednesday 13 January. The game, originally due to be played at Accrington Stanley's ground, has been switched to Turf Moor. Supporters can pay at the turnstiles on the night (£4 adults, £2 concession).
