EFL Cup game abandoned because of rain – in August

Blundell Park

The EFL Cup match between Grimsby Town and Derby County at Blundell Park was abandoned after 19 minutes because of heavy rain in north east Lincolnshire.

The Rams were leading 1-0 through Richard Keogh's header but, with the rain teeming down and surface water building up, the match was called off because of concerns for player safety.
